full turn

on the highway of heroes
a final march past
for a son/husband/father
with misty eyes and salutes
killed on duty in far off lands

killed by enemy fire
an enemy who felt
violated in his abode
the soldier and his comrades
descended uninvited
and killed unarmed civilians
filed under collateral deaths

brothers, sons and daughters
of the deceased in desperation
took up arms and waited
for an opportunity
to spread the shroud of death
