Thank You Australia

Embedded image permalink

Pakistani Taliban descended on a school
Where they opened fire and, as blood began to pool,
Hunted down the children so the death toll's very high...
I can't think about it anymore.  It makes me cry.

Hostages in Sydney (to a Muslim with a gun)
Could have led to riots before all was said and done.
'til the offer thousands of Australians all made;
"I'll ride with you" if you're feeling nervous or afraid.

When the tidings of the Season start to make me blue
I'll think of Australia's act of human kindness, too;
Answering a crime of hate with generosity.
And, if you're in Massachusetts, you can ride with me.
