    They stood there
    faces coated in ash
    which became mud after
    the tears joined the mix

    there is the sun peering from behind
    a cloud of smoke where once stood an
    icon of freedom

    mouths still agape the last syllable
    of the most appropriate word at the time
    hanging limp over the edge of a brand new
    frown

    the people past belief
    and frozen in this aftermath
    minds still trying to figure the math
    that turned on the hot water
    for this bloodbath...

    they stand scarred 'til
    they translate themselves into
    beings past this life of
    man induced
    mental vomiting and the innocent
    are covered in throw up

    ...

    will they ever recover?
