UNFAIR

_____________________

There is a sniper on the loose!

Hiding behind prayers and amulets

Racing from life

Deep in the fox hole of denial

There is the illusion of victory

Until the knees ache

Eyes fail and mirrors lie

Failing to hear the horn

That signals the final charge

Standing outlined in that

Last bright white light

An easy target not worthy

Of the ultimate marksman

DEATH
