WHAT COURAGE IT MUST HAVE TAKEN

Ah the courage it must have taken
Leaving the world awestricken
Swift justice to awaken
Four unarmed construction workers
rebuilding your country
A woman!
Burned and mutilated in the fires of infamy
Violent mobs dismembering the dead
Martyrs blessed by the balm of Gilead!
