Response to the 48-Hr Community Challenge Media Prompt - This Too Shall Pass by OK Go
Golden rays of light
Peer over the horizon
Bringing hope, ever slight
Of past deeds done

Eyes appear in the window
Of a home still dark
Small children in tow
All expressions stark

The night before in hell
They slept not at all
For fear does dwell
And favors the small

All from the same mold
Yet some do not care
Their souls they have sold
To join the nightmare

Another day of quiet
While the dissidents sleep
A chance to contain it
To guard and to keep

Night will be here soon
And all must be secure
They come with the moon
Fear draws like a lure

The hate is unbearable
Condescending and cruel
The killing unconscionable
Done by any bloody fool

Soon they will lose interest
Move on to the next thing
Leave all to their rest
And give back nothing

Just remember...
This too shall pass
