Wrappings


BY AIMEE BEDOY

if you believe in the dignity of human life --

how can you sit idly by,

while thousands and millions of humans die

by the hand of others?

the homicide is ringing in my ears --

-- deafening.

their silence is louder than your rhetoric,

their screams no longer present.

can you hear them?

the cause bears no difference

if it be at another's behest

homicide

never looked so pretty

wrapped up in nice words

like "choice"

and "pre-emptive defense,"

like "preventative measures"

and "criminal justice"

. . . and in hopes that the ends would justify the means.
