A free form piece about injustice and death. This is from my “Hippie Period”, prior to entering the Marine Corps.

No Longer – © 1970

no longer will he
have to see
brother fighting brother
because one’s color is darker
no longer will he
hear the cries
of people calling for help
vainly
no longer will he
have to wait for the
coming death
Sneaking up
as to catch him
off guard
no
only the living
are left
to do these
unconquered deeds
of the
conquered dead
