Lay down your tongue

Wield it no longer

Your flurry of words

Will make us no stronger


Hearts are at stake

Souls have freshly fled

And only they speak

For the broken and dead


Listen just once

Without forming rebuttals

Just short days ago

They hid and they scuttled


Allow them their tears

Honor their pain

And maybe this time

It won’t happen again
