Street lights
Shined down
On scarlet
Stained snow

His overwhelming
Sense of apathy
His lack of remorse

He had no intent
No agenda
No spite
No reason

Lights blurred his vision
And the cold (vexed)
Simply by coincidence
He pulled his knife

In the very next moment
An innocent
Or maybe not
Was dead

Loved ones
Least forgiving
Demanded his life
“Let’s watch him burn”

Pointed fingers
From flagrant disgust
The arbiters of justice
Fated him to die

He laid behind his bars
All things end

A God’s pathetic instrument
Entered the chaplain
“You can save your soul” What smug piety

Strapped to his chair
Allowed his last words
“Can you tell me what justice means?”

In death
He laughed and smiled

The world watched
In overwhelming apathy
Their familiar lack of remorse

In the hearts of men
Lies an infinite ocean of emptiness
