Enjoying the Fireworks, on National Suicide Day?

Six shot dead at the July Fourth parade
The gunshots sound like fireworks, a bystander said
Just keep calm. Someone will come to our aid

You know who paid for your ice-cold lemonade?
Blood of the patriots, cherry-pie red
Six shot dead at the July Fourth parade

The grim-faced cowboy led the Injun raid
Filled those women and babes all full of lead
Just keep calm. Someone will come to our aid

The overseer rode, with gun and naked blade
Whipped that lazy n—— till he bled
Six shot dead at the July Fourth parade

The Devil walks among us on this day without shade
Takes aim with his rifle, and six die, shot in the head
Just keep calm. Someone will come to our aid

Deliver us from evil, we wept as we prayed
We are an innocent people, Lord! Or were we misled?
Six shot dead at the July Fourth parade
Just keep calm. Someone will come to our aid

“The Constitution is not a suicide pact.” Justice Robert Jackson, 1949
“Let’s move on.” Darren Bailey, the Republican candidate for Illinois governor, July 4, 2022
