This was written as a tribute to two volunteer Fire Fighters who were shot and killed.
Christmas Eve morn, when they received the call,
no one could have guessed two of them would fall.
The sniper, with violence on his mind,
ambushed the first responders from behind.

The first shots fired brought some of them down;
word would spread quickly throughout the whole town.
Mike Chiapperini, Tomasz Kaczowka gone;
how could a fire call go so very wrong?

The madman had killed his sister as well
before the police sent him straight to Hell.
Two heroes gone in the blink of an eye
the only thing left was to question why.

West Webster lost two of their very own
but they soon learned they were not all alone.
The community sent all of their love,
surely Mike and Tomasz saw from above.
