Murder of a stranger

The murder of a stranger


Out early this morning

Unable to listen to much more of the news

On the radio

Played Bach Sonatas instead


This place is not worse

Following you’re going or the way you left

It may be better

I have my doubts about it


Time will tell is the saying

But it’s the hate just below the surface

That bothers me most

The lack of compassion


I think of those two small children

And the man you loved abandoned and lost

I wish them kindness

For the present the future as well.
