People are murdered.
At the time
some are innocent of “the
cause” - some are not.
Together
theirs is a fiery death.
More often than not
death comes to them out of the sky.
It is sudden.  Without warning.
There is no
time for final preparations
no time for prayer – no
time to say good-by.
 
Some call this
terror
others
the war on terror.
Burned bodies
of grandmothers and children
are their own witness.
 
How difficult it is
in this world of normalcy
to know right from wrong!
How hard
to hold onto the
lesser of two evils.
 
Many on the ground
in the killing
fields
are running to or
from
the scene of a new crime.
Some call this homicide
war
and the fist of judgment.
Some call it
vengeance
and the hand of God.
 
The dying
in shrouds of fire
are invocations of history.
