Nothing is nice tonight in Nice

Once more the demonic minds strike
On France’s National day, 14th July
Nothing is nice tonight in Nice
When bodies fall in pools carmine

Outside hotel, spectators cursed
After fireworks when dispersed
Whose truck runs over 76 innocents
Butchering them with barbarism
Hundreds wounded life on tenterhooks
Who’s this impetuous driving crook

Run helter skelter to escape
Run run, oh is there no escape
Don’t stop as you could too fall dead
Run, save head, driver has lost head

Is he a jihadi schemer
Or just a crazy murderer
Till truth be revealed we will pray
that peace prevails; there’s no more prey
