The Photo That Sealed Tsarnaev's Fate

(Photo/Courtesy of U.S. Dept. of Justice)

There's a picture that's been circulating for a while
Of Dzhokhar Tsarnaev from the Boston Bombing trial.
First time that I saw it, looked my husband in the eye,
Said, that photo guarantees they'll sentence him to die.

In the picture Dzhokhar's lurking there behind a tree
Looking straight at Martin Richards' happy family.
That is when Tsarnaev, standing silent and alone,
Chose to target children - acting, solely, on his own.

I was spared the gory details jurors had to see
But, I bet that if you asked the courtroom, they'd agree;
That's the piece of evidence that sealed Tsarnaev's fate.
Killing children isn't something we will tolerate.
