Free Verse

I helped to kill a man today
Took away his life
I helped to kill a man today
Stole him from his wife
 
I helped to kill a man today
With eleven other men
I helped to kill a man today
Sentenced him to his end
 
We helped to kill a man today
Agreeing he had to go
We helped to kill a man today
For those the world wouldn't know
 
We helped to kill a man today
"For the greater good"
We helped to kill a man today
The government said we could
 
We watched them kill a man today
Put a needle in his arm
We watched them kill a man today
Though they say killing is wrong
 
We watched them kill a man today
Put on the dead man's hide
We watched them kill a man today
Took the place of he who had died
