In Arrogance they Slew…

 

They will not return to those

who loved them, their lives they

gave; but the one who fired the

deadly shots and left them to die

will not have honor when they lay

in their coward’s grave.

The dead will not return to those

who loved them, so callously slain;

but the one who crossed boundaries

caused a void in many lives that will

never be the same.

Will there be angry for the hour, who

can promise amends, calm fears, who

will pay for this tragedy while those

left behind faces the world through

their tears.

The death of the offender cannot repay,

in arrogance they slew, their good deeds

in life will not be remembered and their

death remembered by few.
