To Whom It May Concern

Listen to his screams;
animalistic bawls as the encasing sears,
Twenty-one years of life wasted,
sacrificed for his country.
A country that cares…

Listen to his dreams;
a near college graduate, ambitious;
ready for the world.
An education wasted on a phallic debate.
That country that dared…

Just listen – to the scared voices,
and the families that care.
Here lies another statistic;
victim of warfare…
