You did this (a poem)

Today’s entry, prompted by the news

You killed her.

She’s dead.
You killed her.

You shot her.
She’s dead.
You killed her.

It was your job.
You shot her.
She’s dead.
You killed her.

She was waiting for you.
It was your job.
You shot her.
She’s dead.
You killed her.

She called you for help.
She was waiting for you.
It was your job.
You shot her.
She’s dead.
You killed her.

She grabbed a knife
She called you for help.
She was waiting for you.
It was your job.
You shot her.
She’s dead.
You killed her.

She was scared.
She grabbed a knife.
She called you for help.
She was waiting for you.
It was your job.
You shot her.
She’s dead.
You killed her.

Someone was trying to break in.
She was scared.
She grabbed a knife.
She called you for help.
She was waiting for you.
It was your job.
You shot her.
She’s dead.
You killed her.

She was trying to protect herself and her kids.
Someone was trying to break in.
She was scared.
She grabbed a knife.
She called you for help.
She was waiting for you.
It was your job.
You shot her.
She’s dead.
You killed her.

She was at home.
She was trying to protect herself and her kids.
Someone was trying to break in.
She was scared.
She grabbed a knife.
She called you for help.
She was waiting for you.
It was your job.
You shot her.
She’s dead.
You killed her.
