the name of the state
or city may be different
the year or decade may
not be the same
the size or caliber
of the gun is irrelevant
.
but it’s the same bullet
ricocheting
through time, flesh
and bone
over and over
and it’s name is hate
and written on it could
be any bodies name
.
isn’t it time it
hit the dirt and finally
buried itself
instead of burying bodies
.
isn’t it about time
its course was altered
once and for all
.
isn’t it?
