Victims Not Honored: A Poem
Every fraction of the second
a bestial crime is committed
and it's impossible to reckon
how many legally permitted.
From wars with a "noble cause"
to some customs tribal and crude
or numerous downright insane laws
not forgetting religious rituals to include.
With all victims of a violent crime
what else is there to be cared for
if human life is not worth a dime
why be proud of our moral score.
Since it's not about our dear ones
those tragedies are but "bad news"
all those fallen husbands and sons
but not someone that we had to lose.
If eye-for-an-eye happened to be the rule
all killings would be cut by more than half
instead of giving rights to that violent bull
pampered in prison and allowed to laugh.
Victim's rights don't seem to matter
only the rights of that insane beast
he gets his served on a silver platter
while victim has right to funeral priest.
