At What Cost? (A Jfk Tribute Poem) - Poem by Debra Kay Robinson

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.
