Everything about yesterdays events in Paris is terrifying but what scared me most is the report that one of the killers is likely aged 15 to 17 years old.
Teenagers, with not enough life lived to appreciate the value of it
Pick up guns in service to a creed that they dont understand
And kill the innocent to send a message that no one hears
Terror terrifys but in the end it unite, and forges pacts
And insures that terrors aims will be forever twarted
By the small people of the world that work and march and watch and say NO.
And that die so terror gains not an inch nor an ounce
And their deaths outweigh the death of foolish youth
Who killed the good in the name of some sick perverted truth
Because the just will die knowing in full the value of a life
While you who deal in terror never knew those truths and never will.
