KIA

All day they came
Crazed by our very being…
they took deadly aim
Eye to eye… we were
Face to face
Onward… Still they came
Around me they fell
Dozens now here
Lining the ground
I was there
where death brewed
At this place
Beyond fear…
where insanity ruled
I could not dodge
I could not run
It was too late
The bullet burned deep
On that last day
I was stayed
by the hand of fate
… one more KIA
