A Lawyers Prayer

Read the newspaper today
Couldn't believe what it had to say
Oh God
Why do the wicked do so wickedly
A woman was stabbed to death
A man was shot to death
A child was put to death
And I want to know why
Not that I could do any thing about it
But I sure would like to try
Oh God
The wicked will always be
But why do we let them walk free
Why do the victims cry
Why does the innocent die
