For the unfortunately numbered, who are no longer with us

22 reasons for living
22 reasons to be
22 things to believe in
22 seasons to see

to see flames of passion ignited
thought extinguished, a phoenix anew
a city so strained, yet united
hearts beaten, both scarlet and blue

an exhibit from parties indignant
such pointless sins spent... such a shame
it's said that we do, do things different
in the end though, we're all just the same

a city beat, rhythm, infectious
with riffs that run plenty and true
thoughts rallying memories precious
… numbers tallying 20 and 2

22 lives that were lost here
22 souls, now set free
22 reasons, to shed yet more tears...
22 reasons to bee
