I want to write but am numb
the past 3 days are frozen
memory of a tragedy
the thing that should not be.

Oh ugly politicians what an ugly lot.
cradle to the grave check self starved fuckers
responsible for the mess today
sacrificing your country men for you personal greed

a salute to the brave,
killed in the line of duty
a very small sentence
its meaning beyond all words
supreme sacrifice for others
forever indebted…..

the gun salute made me cry
why do such brave men need to die
because we need to live
