Loss of innocence

On Friday 22nd July
the beautiful country of Norway
lost its innocence
once lost can never be regained.

I weep for the people
I weep for society
but most of all
I weep for the soul of the country.

Unquestioningly I weep for Norway
in turmoil right now.
I think of you
as you ascend from the deep.

To the Norway
you knew before
now soiled with evil
so alien to your land.

Will you ever be the same? 
It is not possible
changed for ever
but you will recover
to be the great democracy you are.
