Rhyme & Reason

A child did a car crush

Then sped away in rush

Unbelievably callous

Satan must be jealous

Horrific and shameful

Disgusting and hateful

Accidents do take place

But what utter disgrace

The convoy moved on

In a flash it was gone

Sympathy thou art fled

When that child bled

Blood tainted the floor

One life was no more

And life progressed on

Dusk turned into dawn

My soul remained awake

Humanity burnt at the stake
