When terror knocks on your door, it’s too late for prayer
Another attack, another suicide killer
But the widespread outrage
Is about a Facebook filter
In the media it unfolds —
Edge of the seat type of thriller
Pray for (Insert Country)
Spreads like a bumper sticker.
And then there are the bitter
Conspiracists who write their features
“Stop the refugees!”
Throw them back to the litter
“Blame it on America!”
Before they came it was better.
Meanwhile nobody mentions the elephant
Preachers, and the weak minds they pray to hunt
They trap prey with a verse, stoke the fire
Then direct it like a punt, now they’re guns for hire.
We can’t fight fire with fire
Can’t divide by skin or prayer
Because when terror knocks on Your door
It’s too late for prayer
