justifiable homicide…

there shall be
no
trial
no
jury
listening
to
a barrage
of
words
point
counterpoint volleys
fired
into the air
by
uniformed attorneys
whose
solemn oath
is
that
they will
represent
with
dignity 
courtesy
and
integrity
each element
of
this creed
it would seem
has been
somehow
operationally defined
but
that is
of
little concern
for
our present case
for
even though
life saving
food
and
medicine
was
intentionally
withheld
from
dying children
no charges
will
be brought
it’s just
a simple
issue
of
national security
our
political will
against
their dying children
that’s not crime
it’s
the way the game is played
a game of chicken
played
with
other people’s lives
