    Just like any other day in London
    They got up, went to work, paid the bills, and moaned about how slow the bus was goin'
    It is sunny and warm
    The bus rolls steady without alarm
    There is one lady that sits in the corner of the bus soothing her child
    She cries because she's sleepy and her head aches mild
    Another lady on the top of the double Decker looks out the window in denial
    She wonders why her boyfriend didn't come home last night for a while
    The man that she thinks about is on a subway train heading to the home they share
    Thinking up a lie for his girlfriend before he gets there
    He spies a woman reading a book with long blonde hair
    She looks up to him and smiles as he heads over
    But before he can head over a big woman in a maid's uniform bumps him back into his seat
    She carries the frown of a mad woman because she had to stop what she was doing to go cross town to get her boss something to eat
    And the bunion is swollen so big on her feet
    She sits down next to a black man with long dreads down his back
    He frowns as the lady takes off her shoes, a smell so terrible he has to sit back
    He daydreams of a woman and the passion he holds for her
    Just last night they were making sweet and dirty love together
    The woman he dreams about is across town on another subway train
    She heads to work in a business suit with Elijah on her brains
    She's so much in a daze that she drops her paper
    A man across from her picks it up and admires her
    He starts a smooth conversation with the woman and forgets he has a wife
    A wife which is on another subway train just blocks away
    His wife of many years is a journalist
    She loves her husband and innocently proclaims to everyone she's proud to be his
    She thinks back just hours before when they left with a morning kiss
    And just hours later when she was doing her boss on his desk
    She feels a mess
    As she looks over at her boss sitting next to her
    With a smile on his face as he admires the man next to him
    Yes, he's an undercover brother but the woman next to him is his gem
    The man he admires name is Jim
    Jim is a construction worker and is no way a undercover brother so he looks away
    He looks at a picture of him, his wife, and three kids
    He's a family man and works for everything he's did
    A woman sees him looking at the picture and asks about his kids
    The first to be mentioned is his daughter Breesha
    She's on the same double Decker from the start talking to Serena
    They gossip about Gina in the front of the bus who just stole Serena’s man
    As Gina sits nervously in front waiting for her stop
    Her stop is coming up fast but not fast enough
    So she starts conversation with the bus driver who's buff
    They talk and they talk never hearing the timer under the bus as it ticks
    Time passes, tick- tock- tick
    Before long there will be chaos and people running frantic
    Three subway trains and a double Decker hit
    Thirty three lives and counting from what some mindless terrorist did
    Killing for a cause, man that's stupid
    If these people would have known this was going to happening they wouldn't have got on the train or subway I bet
    My Deepest Sympathy London!!!!!!!!!!!!

    US, London, or where ever everybody is from
    I just wish we could quit the madness and get alone
    Everyone ain't gon' get their way, but does that mean we should bomb?
    If I was president I would work with everyone
    It wouldn't matter if they Black or Asian
    There probably wouldn't be world peace but these attacks would be gone
    Talking about life, well it would be a good one
    But until then..... My Deepest Sympathy London!!!!!!!!!!

    When I heard about the London tragedy I was really down about it. It reminded me of the September 11th tragedy with the United States. I'ono, I just felt I should write something about so I started thinking deep and hard about stuff and I came up with this. Let me know what you think.

    Life moves about like this, just going through our day to day travels, not realizing the unthinkable will change everything. I liked the way you laced all this together. Such a sad situation....
