Someone’s Going To Have To Pay

 

Someone’s going to have to pay for that waste of so much life,

someone will be accountable for wielding the knife

 

of irresponsibility, of trying to do things on the cheap,

they won’t be able to cover-up, the damage is too deep.

 

So many failings have been found, so much of neglect,

so much callous disregard to all the lives they’ve wrecked.

 

Who will be the guilty ones? It will take a long, long time

for them to investigate this most horrific crime.

 

Not only how it started, but why that fire did spread

and become a total conflagration that has left so many dead.

 

Lessons need to be learned from this catastrophic event

so no more innocent lives are so meaninglessly spent.

 

All that is left standing there is a tall and blackened shell,

a monument that represents so many people’s hell.
