They killed them

August 4, 2011

By NathanLabiano, Enfield, CT

There was Jesus of Nazareth, also called the Christ;
We beat him and tortured him and had him crucified.
John Wilkes Booth shot Lincoln in the back of the head;
they hunted him down and shot him dead.
Lee Harvey Oswald killed JFK;
Jack Ruby found him and blew him away.
Martin Luther had a dream of equality;
They gunned him down, the new world he'll never see.
I wrote a poem about what I know is true;
They hunted me down and They killed me too.
