Change of Mind

 

by honour bound

to those now gone

we regard them now

as heroes

who did little more than die

without justice

 

I pause

pondering

 

my dictionary says

a figure renowned

for exceptional

courage

and

fortitude

 

corrected

I continue

 

so I guess

they are heroes

and need not my

disparagement

of the sentiment

that makes them so

 

sorry
