Dedicated To The Fallen by rexxyjosh(m): 6:12pm On Feb 15, 2020
This one's for you, brothers and sisters,
supermen swaddled in green suits,
giants strewn across desolated hamlets,
bleeding from a thousand wounds
from multiple stabs in the back
as your murderers are feted and purged of
your blood and sent back to hound us
and prey on our children.
You believed in a dream, but this dream
turned sour and stank of betrayal.
You were fighting for hope, the hope of
a land shorn of evil, free from terror,
and the hope killed you
but the hope lives on.
