Remembering the lives lost - a poem.
Much harping out of fallacy,
Begging for the best insurance.
A unique crossfire and liking
To eternal looting
For cherished gifts.
Lives taken through the sheer,
Bludgeoning doom -
A miscarriage of vacated,
Pardonable mercy.
And lost angels survive
In this memory of emblazoned,
Odd-ball serenity... 

In dedication to the artists,
Miracle workers establish
Their sworn oaths to peruse
The painful horrors and truths
Which lie ahead. 

Knowing that these mighty deeds
Have created
A horrific absence
And ill-construed modesty;

Meanwhile, further contempt shall
Correct and abolish
These fruitless idiocies

Whose enforcement belittles
The sad, sanctimonious jargon
At the core of sweeping
Political discord and apparent change;

For this sacred owning of decency
We uphold
And longingly protect.
