Slaughter of innocents

Recently we had a post discussing the use of  strong  language in songs and  poems, sorry if  this offends any one but I  feel in this case it  warrants the use, so please feel free to insert an appropriate alterative word at the end .

Slaughter of innocents

You rain down your terror
on people like me
Without rhyme or reason
the whole world can see
My brothers and sisters
die screaming in pain
No one should suffer
for somebody's gain
They say lightening can
never strike the same place
As bolt after bolt
seems to target my place
The innocents perish
the people erased
The meaning of mercy
turned arse about face
Your promises vanish
as quick as pie crust
And memories dissolve
blown away with the dust
All of your words they
appear back to front
It is my opinion
that you are a C**T ...

Re: Slaughter of innocents

Some times this is the only way to descibe.
I think the C word really fits in this context!
Nice work

Re: Slaughter of innocents

I have the utmost respect for your musical abilities and song writing Graham. And this song is very powerful in content and emotion. But speaking only for myself,and I'm no prude by any stretch, I could never use that word in a song or otherwise. For sure not on a family friendly forum.That being said, you are still one of my favorite posters on this site. jmo.

Re: Slaughter of innocents

Thanks for the honest comments ,I knew this would be controversial when I posted this.My emotions were strong when writing and I felt there wasn't another word strong enough in the English language to finish the poem hence the warning at the beginning.
