News from Charleston

Nine shots maybe more
Ring out in our ears,
We were all deaf before
So now we shed no tears
In these quiet places
Where we bow our head
We dare not leave traces
Of those who are dead.

Let us clean the blood
Off the ground and our hands,
Let us ignore the flood
Of the tears of those damned
By ignorance for ignorance sake
To appease fearful men
Who ignore those forced to undertake
The mantle of victim in this deadly sin.
