A Brilliant Song About Politicians Who Only Send “Thoughts and Prayers” After Tragedies

Roy Zimmerman‘s old song about politicians who send their “thoughts and prayers” after tragedies, while doing nothing actually meaningful, never sounded so relevant:

ThoughtsPrayersRoy

Yes, this is war we semi-automatically repeat
And so, my friends reload and don’t retreat, but do retweet
We vomit violent rhetoric like drunken legionnaires
And to the victims of this tragedy we send our thoughts and prayers

Next time some crazy loner shoots some people in the head
don’t start attacking us by quoting things we actually said
This ain’t no time for politics you commie liberal where’s your decency
pray for peace and see

Add this to the growing list of commentaries we can bring out again after the next mass shooting.
