Manchester Monday

Just another

Manchester Monday.

Children with their families

enjoying themselves.

 

Just another

tragedy breaking.

Could be here or

anywhere.

 

Just another

mother mourning.

Broken hearts and

empty beds.

 

Just another

opportunity to reach out.

Go offer free lifts, blood,

holy hospitality.

 

Just another

reason for hatred.

But nothing ever changes

if you choose that.

 

Just another

explanation given.

But it’ll never make sense

whatever you say.

 

Just another

time for mourning.

Not a new thing

but still so raw.

 

Just another

Manchester Tuesday.

Today will be awful

but life WILL go on.
