She Said Something

sweet

honey

&

the rock

sing

sing out

south carolina

my sad south

keep the

faith

we people

grieve

with you

we people

nash

with you

we are not you

but we too

have sons

we too

have daughters

we too

wake with empty

and fill ourselves

with each other

with purple

with

gospel song

that defeats

even death

that suckers

for no one

that compassion

cannot shoot

that compassion

cannot bleed

that compassion

will wake

and will not

wilt

will not wilt

for no man for no woman for no child

compassion my sweet home south

cannot be killed
