At That Time

At the time of the shootings at Kent State,

I was told little; being only eleven

years old.  Now in this very decrepit and late

time of my life, I can sadly say

that I should have done more to offer my sorrow

(against the "establishment's" dictate

that the bullets of lead sharpened with hate).

The young victims I mourn, with no promise of tomorrow;

those students cut off and cut down with no promise of today.
