Thoughts and prayers

For the naysayers

Who claim they do nothing

And that we should do something

But it’s easy to say that

When it’s home you’re at

While the victims mourn

Looking for anything to feel reborn

Of course there needs to be some action

But our words are just a reaction

To a tragedy that happened

So don’t be going on laughing

That our talk is pointless

Because we don’t want to be useless

Never know what thoughts and prayers might do

Especially next, when it could be you
