School Day Bloody School Day

July 18, 2022

With apologies to U2

Though wonder if they would re-record this??
Since human on human wars never end

Unfortunately this will be topical again….
Sooner or later, probably sooner than later

“School Day Bloody School Day”

Yeah

Schooool

Where…. kids should learn and play
Closed their eyes, one final time today

How long!
Till we try, and right this wrong
How long? It is sooooooo wrong?

It’s not right. School, ought not be a fright

Bloody bodies draining by the desks
Crying parents now emotional wrecks

Can’t blame the gun lobby at all
They are the experts
Experts at, creating the stall

Monday, Bloody School Day
Tuesday, Bloody School Day
Wednesday, Bloody School Day
Thursday, Bloody School Day

Alright, let’s mow

Congress prattle still goes on
Violent murders can not be undone

The stench is vile from the corpse
And still the NRA has yet to show remorse

School Day, Bloody School Day
School Day, Bloody School Day

Too soon? The police won’t enter the room
Blue thin. Line’s dim

Going in hot, means “they” might get shot

School Day, Bloody School Day
(Today, today)
School Day, Bloody School Day
(Today, today)
Can’t save none

Kids didn’t want to die

Planted seeds in haste
Such a tragic waste
Simply ran out of days


School Day, Bloody School Day
(Oh, wipe your bloodshot eyes)
Monday, Bloody School Day
Tuesday, Bloody School Day
Wednesday, Bloody School Day, oh
Thursday, Bloody School Day
Friday, Bloody School Day, oh

Yeah, let’s mow

(This part of this dark parody, writes itself)

And it’s true, we are immune
When fact is fiction and TV reality
And today, the millions cry
(School Day, Bloody School Day)

We eat and drink while tomorrow, they die (School Day, Bloody School Day)
The constant prattle still goes on
(School Day, Bloody School Day)
To lose the victory the NRA has won
(School Day, Bloody School Day)
On—

School Day, Bloody School Day, yeah, yeah
School Day, Bloody School Day

    Oh OUCH! So brilliant and the reality of the truth that you speak here is devastating. What are we doing to our young men that makes them so angry, so full of despair and hate? Can we turn to them and show them how they are loved? That they matter? How else to get this endless violence to stop?
    Thanks as always for your wisdom, endless creativity, and putting your energy out there to share with us.
