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
