A Tribute to Manchester


Today, England is scared and full of pain

We pray for those in Manchester, so willingly slain.

Man, or Woman, Black or White, we all shed a tear

We condemn those monsters who would drown us in fear.


But those of the north show great resolve

Love and Hope keeps them together, their spirit will never dissolve.

They come together, arm in arm across the town

Not the fires of fascism, nor the screams of extremists can bring them down.


Attempts to divide, bring them together

Their enemies say fall, but they scream never.

Some might say we will find a brighter day

It will be the people of Manchester who show us the way.


Today, atlas shrugged, but the northerners took the weight

This alone, is what makes the city so unquestionably great.
