The sky is red tonight

The air is made of silence

The ground is stained with crimson love

Dripping thoughts of violence

-

The bodies lay across the floor

(Thirteen, to be exact)

Their eyes wide open in pure fear

Their wounds recall the act

-

Heads are hung in silent prayer

To send souls to the LORD

As they pray, they do not know

Their pleas will be ignored

-

The people each light ashen candles

In memory of this sight

A tear falls from a child's eye

The sky is red tonight
