A Poem by Alexa Tasch

Why not?

Everybody is doing it.

I'm just like you,


I only killed a man.

I killed him

because he killed me


We're all murders

of one kind or another.

You'll say that's not true.

You know it is.


Ever made someone feel bad?

You killed a little part of them.

Do you see?

Do you get it?

You murder.

You're just like me.

Thank you!
This is a forward take on getting people to see the other side! the rhetorical questions are a slap in the face for the readers and demands attention. i like the new take!

murder-murderer and other than that, no spelling or grammar mistakes. and it is kind of true. everyone has made fun of someone atleast once before. it probably does kill a little bit of the inside of a person when you make fun of them.
