Death of a Killer

Death of a Killer

A Poem by Piper Lynn

How is it you lie so peaceful,
Laying in the lilies as if you belong?
So quiet, so somber,
The weeping of the widowed mother
All the sound that shall be heard.
A remarkable young man,
King, truth-seeking, and loving
Who death took so premature.
Yet, I, only I, know who you really were.
You stole. 
A thief, of the worst kind,
Stealing human lives.
Cold and precise,
You write down their death,
Signing with your flawless hand.
Yet still you smile,
There among your white lilies.
Oh, how I still love you.

Intriguing little poem... it brings to question why we can love people who are bad for us.
