Americans Die


Americans Die


Girls and boys at the movies watching


A man takes action toward infamous heights


He stalks the kids and moves against them


Kids scream and pain and all the time latching




Parents cry, children die


And a nation mourns them all


Victims rage and feel sorry


For an actor that cannot deny




His actions are for fame


And nothing would please him more


To hear his name on the evening news


He doesn’t try to share the blame




A nation recovers and wounds heal


We hear of bravery and strength


And less of cowardly acts


Innocence is the biggest casualty
