Social Comment - What Did You Feel? - Poem by Paul Warren

What did you feel as you pushed the knife?
Did all the strain disappear with this strife?
Did the lust for killing find you now
Or was it just your final bow?

What did you feel as you pulled the trigger?
Did it come through after your thoughts of rigour?
Was you point finally made
Once it was done did you make your grade?

What is left now that it’s done?
Was it the final act of knife or gun?
In these days of overbearing grief
Did you come taking a life as a unforgiving thief?

    Two TV journalists were killed at the same station yesterday - - and while they were on the air! Is this the same incident you are talking about?
    You have some great thoughts.
