God loves idiots and little children.

I saw the face of a young  man, lying in a pool of blood.


They say it was gang violence, I say it was senseless.


I saw the face of a young girl, crying by the fence.


She said she didn’t see a thing, she wants her boyfriend back.


I saw the face of a young boy, riding up on his bike.


Shouting in vain through tear filled eyes, brother please get up.


I saw the face of a mother, running to the scene.


She threw herself upon her son, they had to force her off.


I saw the face of a father, anguish filled his heart.


Mumbling my boy got out, how could it go so wrong?


I saw the face of a young man, lying in a pool of blood.


They say it was gang violence, I say it was senseless.
