May 11

It was May 11
Some knights templar were burn to death
On ground so nonsense

It was May 11
Some seven people turn to death
In Mussel Slough gun battle
At well known Californian place

When 32 shriners died
For train derailing
It was May 11

When American troops invaded Attu
To expel Japanese troops
It was May 11

When Waco tornado sent 114 people to heaven
It was May 11

And it was May 11
When Bradford City stadium
Met with fire
It was May 11

And it was May 11
When Deep Blue smothered Kasparov
To be first computer
To defeat world chess champion
It was May 11

And it was May 11
The 2013 Reyhanli bombings
Took tragedy to the peaceful Turkish
It was May 11

And I’m certain
They were May 11
For Wikipedia reminded me
They were May 11.
