one man

how shameful it is
to celebrate a killing

piling injustice upon
tragedy borne of injustice

what good is the
death of a man?

how many thousands of
lives did it take to kill one?

such madness

to kill is no way
to end a war

it continues

it will continue

for there will always
be brothers and mothers
and fathers and sons and
daughters and friends and
neighbors and those
who remember

what child would
thank us
for this legacy
of bloodlust?
