Rookie - 52 Points (1951 / Cincinnati Ohio)

Assassin


Moving through dark
shadowy trees,
slumped center-frame,
he walked awkwardly,
mumbling
his mad invective,
ineffective rage until
reaching the flag
he vaporized
into anger’s
flame.

That was his manifesto
video
you-tubed
cabled
into my reluctant eyes.

But I cannot turn away.

I must see how
anger and madness,
armed and dangerous
shatters a mind,
murders
a judge’s wisdom,
a child’s innocence.

They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
