Virus firing squad

Did you turn away, the machine guns, the lives you wiped away, the booze they filled you with, to ease the way, the men in the spitfires, who knew their chances were slim, the early apostles, their friends on the cross, their fears our doubts, the men who stood in the trenches, over the top they went, no insurance, just the hope of a better world. as for Joan of arc, and millions like her, silenced into fear, do we really understand sacrifice, or is it the way we treasure our own lives. How many are living in dictatorships this night, how many women are in fear of their lives, how many wish for food, their only thought.

Solomon sighed; the human race has a long way to go, amen.
