Broken glass
Broken hearts
Fractured skulls
No remorse.

Battered …. pulled 
Shoved and stomped
Crushing blows
Are what they want.

Filled with hate
Rage and fury
No regard 
For judge or jury.

Seething… grieving
Pumped … empowered

Lulled into
A false agenda
Fueled …. sustained
Will not surrender.

Cults and clubs
Will have its members
When it’s over
We’ll remember.

Who was there?
Who held the knife?
Who pulled the trigger?
Who led the fight?

Blood was spilled
Seeped and splattered
Those still standing
Know what matters.

Under arrest 
Told to stop
Cease and desist.

From within
Can never happen 
Here again.
