Olympia, It's Your Fault

Written about today's train derailment Dec 12,2017

Oh my God how could you let this happen? 
Let good people get hurt because you were too greedy to wait
To show off your hot, new thing
You have no excuse
Monsters! All of you! 
Putting the almighty dollar ahead of keeping people safe
I don't know how you even sleep at night! 
After the horror you let happen today

It's beyond belief someone could be so cold and selfish
There were innocent people on that train
People you may well have now scarred for life
So much for a joyful holiday! 

Your cruel act has robbed some families of that for sure
Once greed has its hooks into you I guess nothing else in life matters much
U and u alone are the reason why this awful thing happened
Respondsability you must accept or if not...
I'm sure the courts will make you
Once the lawsuits start
Full of shh! 
And you know it

A lot of bad headlines sure now to come your way
U better have no doubt at all about that one
Live, learn and for God's sake take better care next time

This is a miracle only by God's will at this Christmas time that it was't worse

Much, much worse.....
