I Need A Break


I've been glued to television; sickened by the news...
Going to New Hampshire to be soothed by mountain views.
Cannot watch this tragedy rehashed, again, today.
Tired of the talking heads and what they have to say.

Have to skip the tributes 'cause they only make me cry.
There is nothing I can do to help the FBI.
I'll be sending money to a local guy who lost
Both his legs on Monday - which still won't defray his cost.

That - and offer up my prayers - it's all that I can do
And, as a lapsed Catholic, my prayers may not go through.
So, I'm going to the mountains where I'll be up high
Praying for the victims and that we will catch this guy.
