The Assassin

As we lived our lives in bliss and peace
you came into our lives well planned
though we did not harbor any ill will
the trigger you pulled was with wanton…

What harm did we poor do to you
did you even blink before you shot
our images splashed across papers
for people to read with their breakfast…

We know you appear in different forms
a soldier, a mad man or a lynching crowd
a bad decision by an inexperienced man
or a cowardly man trying to save himself…
