It Happened Today

Past is preferable
Only because fewer things
Have happened there

Turned on the TV
Such terrible déjà vu
It’s happened again

Sick to my stomach
Reports just keep arriving
And they keep changing

There’s nothing to say
After all of this running
Only to give blood

The blood keeps speaking
No matter what may happen
We run to the site

Keep looking for them
Don’t let us out of your sight
This is happening
