Thoughts and prayers
Thoughts and prayers
For moms and dads in black despair.

Thoughts and prayers
Thoughts and prayers
From President, congressmen, governors, mayors.

Thoughts and prayers
Thoughts and prayers
From the NRA and Wayne LaPierre.

Thoughts and prayers
Thoughts and prayers
The grief we feel, the pain we share.

Thoughts and prayers
Thoughts and prayers
But by Amendment Two we swear.

Thoughts and prayers
Thoughts and prayers
But guns are money, so laissez faire.

Thoughts and prayers
Thoughts and prayers
Another drone drops from the air.

Thoughts and prayers
Thoughts and prayers
Mais c’est la vie, et c’est la guerre.

Thoughts and prayers
Thoughts and prayers
The heads are empty, the souls are bare

Thoughts and prayers
Thoughts and prayers
Clichéd the phrase, once noble pair.

But guns are money, so laissez faire.

I read that there was an immediate local surge in gun sales following the Newtown shootings.
