At What Cost? (A JFK Tribute Poem)


November 22,1963

Three shots,

One life.



Without warning

History made…

Forever changed.



Three shots,

One life.



Twenty-five years,

November 22,1988.

Too young to remember

(Not too young)

To respect



Three shots,

One life.



Fifty years,

November 22,2013

A world changed,

Forever to question,

At what cost?

© Copyright 1988

Dedicated to the 25th Anniversary of the assignation of JFK and in future tribute to the 50th Anniversary.

Poem of the Day

poet Paul Laurence Dunbar

The mist has left the greening plain,
The dew-drops shine like fairy rain,
The coquette rose awakes again
Her lovely self adorning.

The Wind is hiding in the trees,
