The People

What a scream
What a face
What a dark place
With cobweb lace

The death of a butterfly
Questions why
But the people only sigh
As they watch an ally die

The suffocating pride
Kept the people wide eyed
But they let the pain subside
As another hero died

The overdue sympathy
Created only misery
Confused the joker and his trickery
As another lay in melancholy

  wow, good turn of words on this one! i am coming more and more to appreciate word slants instead of just old school nursery rhyme style. i really liked the short simplicity of the poem, but i didnt quite comprehend the full meaning, other than a general feeling of repulsion toward our calloused society. in that reguard i must humbly and disappointedly agree with you. thank you so much for sharing!
