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
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?
