In this time of tragedy, it does my heart good,
To see peoples so diverse as allies.
Evil’s terror brings unity, just as it should,
With “Je suis Charlie” their defiant battle cry.
How must it have felt staring fate in the face
When our wrath brought their final curtain call.
Surely their God, will not bring them to grace
Instead down to Hell they must fall.
What God could condone their horrible acts,
Murdering innocents over Charlie’s cartoon.
Under guise of offense, an excuse for attacks,
Their cause becomes fodder for lampoon.
So pray on this day and stand steadfast as one, for us all they cannot defeat.
To live by the gun is to die by the gun, let us hope this will never repeat.

Great post.l hope this unity after a sad tragedy will unite the civilized world to confront the evil of radicalism in all it’s shapes .jalal
Thank you Jalal, I too hope that it unites the world against these radicals that are bastardizing a peaceful religion. We can only hope.
God does not condone such acts of violence…this is man’s folly. BTW…I love your poetry! It really speaks to me.
Thank you Bev, I am so glad and you are right, God does not condone this violence…I couldn’t agree more.
Wow. This is truly a masterpiece!
Thank you so much Carol, this tragedy really inspired me.
Amen Dom. Amen.
Thank you so much my friend.
Hear, hear. All those who take faith hostage to promote violence and evil must have a special circle in hell reserved for them
I could not agree more. Thank you Anna.
