Bomber killed an 8 year old. I hope the bastard's proud.
First was at the Finish Line; the second, down the block.
Here in Massachusetts we're still in a state of shock.
Witnesses described it as a loud, percussive thud...
Thought it was a celebration - then they saw the blood.
First responders to the scene arrived in seconds flat;
Faster than the runners who won olive for a hat.
I don't know how many lives they saved, but 3 were lost.
Can't begin to calculate the pain these bombs will cost.
Near the victory bridge - in April breezes - flags unfurled...
Boston mourns explosions that sent shock-waves 'round the world.
