Treasure Island

Full Weight of Justice (Boston Marathon)


All they could here was boom, boom
Each within in a few seconds delay
Too many this was a day that was that was full of terror and doom
Why did this have to happen on this day?
This was a day that was supposed to be filled with tiring fun
But all they were left is the sounds of screams
Causing many of them to scared to finish the run.
This destroyed the average runner’s dream
To be able to the find the strength in themselves to accomplish and to achieve
One of the greatest things in their life
This is so hard to believe
Why this day had to end with so much strife
Not one or two, but three
Lives that had to end
It hurts to see at least 140 injured bodies that were lying in the street full of debris
Thank God for the unsung heroes that took the time to step in
To give first-aid and to calm the blistering souls
Of the ones that were injured not only on this day but for life
Hopefully the reasoning behind this act of terror will unfold
Soon the Full Weight of Justice will reign down on this human lowlife

We need to remind ourselves of our main goal
That there is nothing that can to destroy America’s strong hold
Not on other countries
But within ourselves, because we are the home of the land of the Free

"Arcturus" is his other name—
I'd rather call him "Star."
It's very mean of Science
To go and interfere!

I slew a worm the other day—
