They told me they believed the city was safe

But they must have not seen the blood

Which soaked the streets and caked the walls

And the souls that wandered all around

Wondering where to go and how to get there.

The terror that strikes one’s hearts

Is at large in the city

It keeps us safe from any sort of threat

For we lash out even before knowing who it is

Promising to keep us safe and sound

But it does the complete opposite

To our souls and our minds.

The city is safe?

You must be kidding.
