Justified Homicide

Justified Homicide

While words roll on and cameras turn
The sea beats the "saviours" and the fires burn
Within the depths of the watery grave
Of men not old, not young, not brave.

Just normal men who had a life
A child or two, a home, a wife.
No super powers did they possess
To live this way - before this mess.

Remember too, this is not the first!
Nor the last while there are those who thirst
For power, for profit, and social aplomb
From their share in extracting hydrocarbon!!!!!!
					15 July 1988

    How quickly we forget, as long as the car starts every morning. I applaud your bringing this up again, and a nice poem as well. BG
