Colin F. Jones


Fate is simply circumstance
not an ingredient of blame
Soldiers are but robots
who unfortunately have a brain,
Fate decides the action
and the weapon does the job
The soldier pulls the trigger
and another widow sobs
The maker of the weapon
and the maker of the round,
Both become the soldier
fighting for his ground
Those who designed the weapon
and the people they were for,
All become the soldiers
as they fight a bloody war.

Society is an unbroken circle of people,
all pointing fingers at one another.

Blame is where the gap is.
