Say your prayers and mourn the dead,
But much more killing is still ahead.
As long as the guns are in our lives,
Only a random number survives.
Empty words are always spoken.
The heart of society is broken.
Many say all we can do is pray.
Legislation’s for another day.
Second Amendment is a suicide pact.
Now is the time for leaders to act.
Do something more than just offer prayers
And show us which of you really cares.
