WHY MY BELOVED COUNTRY?
Brooks Bradbury
December 2013

ANOTHER SCHOOL SHOOTING
ONE MORE TRAGIC DAY
ANOTHER MADMAN TERRORIST
LOST AND GRIEVING WE PRAY

THE MEDIA DRILL
WILL ROLL OUT THE SAME
WHO DID THE SHOOTING
WHO DID HE KILL?
WHAT WAS HIS NAME?
AND WHAT ABOUT MOTIVES?
ON HALLOWED GROUND
MORE FLOWERS ARE LAID
WITH FLICKERING VOTIVES
EACH A SYMBOL OF LIGHT
OF EACH LOSS PROFOUND

THERE IS A FIGHT
AHEAD
WE MUST FIGHT

WHY MY BELOVED COUNTRY
HAVE WE NOT YET RESOLVED?
THIS ISSUE OF GUNS
HAVE OUR LEADERS DISSOLVED?

WITH TEARS POURING OUT
FROM SO MANY EYES
ARE GUN RIGHTS MORE PRECIOUS
THAN OUR OWN CHILDREN’S LIVES?

TOO LITTLE ACTION
TOO MANY WHY’S
ACROSS RIVERS OF BLOOD
OUR GREAT NATION CRIES

WE CAN’T HOLD BACK
A GREAT NATION CRIES
THE FLOOD OF TEARS
IN OUR AMERICAN EYES
