Americus grieves, a city in pain
For it lost one son today
This town which sits upon a hill
A community of vast collective will
Now its citizens mourn and cry
For one of their finest has just died
Their college, a beacon of wisdom and strength
They too have come together to pray.
We do, indeed, know the killers name
We hope for capture or surrender in shame
A town so close, so bonded together
This is a storm it too shall weather.
For you see “Americus” is the man
Its female counterpart the continent it spans.
For as Americus the city now prays with great zeal.
We call upon our lady, AMERICA, to help it heal.
