Action and Reaction


The action begins when the hammer finishes dropping
     When the echoes die
     When the ringing stills

A clarion call to arms above the masses of families sobbing
     Where the rage remains
     Where the fists curl

Starter pistol shotgun blast to energize the lynch mob mass
     Why is soon unimportant
     Why is lost in reaction

Singularity becomes hive-mind in the rush and broken glass
     What drives so well
     What fuels such violence

The fires burn both within and without for days afterward
     How did it come to this
     How could it not
