LATE (DEATH OF A POLICEMAN)


(I wrote this after reading that PC David Rathband, who was shot at close range in July 2010, had taken his own life.)

One moment,
one murderous moment,
and everything changed,
everything,
nothing would,
nothing could
ever be the same again.

The murderer was dead,
easy way out,
the victim lived on
in suffering and challenge,
with courage and defiance,
until that point that few of us know,
that point of no return,
that point when candles burn
to salute the hero, to mourn his fate,
- too late, people, too late.
