Manchester with blood is spilled
Ariana's concert – foyer shock;
Will this carnage never stop?
Thousands gathered for a show

Headline news flashed on our screens
Innocence in smithereens

For this, an unprovoked attack?
The mirror in our lives is cracked
Society looks on, aghast;
I fear this will not be the last...
