James Bulger case...

To No Avail

Saint of Tragedy
Can you feel the pain?
Do you feel the empathy?
A child was killed
To no avail

Saint, Saint, Saint of tragedy
Do you feel more than sympathy?
Do you understand a mother’s pain?
When a child of two
He was taken away
Taken away
And he was killed
He was killed to no avail

What a world,
What a world
Oh Saint of Tragedy
Can you feel this heartache?
Bruised and abused
A child of two
He was killed to no avail

What a world,
Oh Saint of Tragedy
Bless his soul
For he was killed to no avail

  i like this, it makes me wanna look up this case....a few comments on this, though.
i know repetition is necessary in a lot of works, but for me, the line "When a child of two
He was taken away
Taken away
And he was killed
He was killed to no avail" is a little strange in its repetition scheme. taken away and killed (i know) are the necessary answers to each other, but it seems like you could come across a little more creative way of expressing this instead of the same structure and such similar words. other than that, though, i really liked the message and the power that you convey, you are quite good at getting a point and a message across.
