History Lesson

Written by: James Nichols

crimson mist in the Dallas sky
a frantic wife's mad dash.
the world watched as we cried
hope gone in a flash.

brilliant poet with timeless verse
and enduring message of peace.
a murderous fan fulfilled his curse
does lunacy ever cease?

perfect day in the city
until the towers fell.
religious zealots who had no pity
their resting place is hell.

so look at history if you can
and learn from such hindsight.
as long as evil has a plan
we must not quit the fight.
