The Fallen

Seventeen more fell today

across a country filled with anger.

 

The smell of despair filling posts,

fingers pointing in every direction.

 

Orders to speak not his name

and honor the dead and traumatized.

 

Reliving October 1st as the

media fills every outlet they can.

 

Hearing the screams and

seeing the faces over again.

 

Sleep won’t come for the

living who grieve for the fallen
