His Legend Lives

A madman’s humanity

of which we decry

When he has those feelings

the same, you and I


How can he commit

such actions of death

Then cry when a comrade

lets out his last breath


A madman with feelings

the concept abhors

That he loves his children

his dog and his whores


His body dies bloody

his legend to live

Embroiled in fury

—only time can forgive
