A Tribute to Manchester

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.
