I Wept

I saw a fireman carrying a child
Amid all the cries of dispair
An attempt to remember Waco
And to make our nation aware.

And I wept...

I saw the lines at the clinics
The killings of the doctors there,
An attempt to remember abortion
And to make our nation aware.

And I wept...

I saw a senator spend a fortune
Anything to get elected was fair,
From dirty tricks to slinging mud
That's to make our nation aware.

And I wept...

I saw a child killing children
Drive -bys all done on a dare,
All about turf and disrespect
And to make our nation aware.

And I wept...

What a shame to have such passion
In your heart you know they care,
Then to use it for pain and sorrow
Just to make our nation aware.

AND I WEEP!
