Death Toll

Yes, just another story of hate
and to look for a cause we would probably
have to start at the beginning
but most of that is lost or forgotten
so, let's just pick up on the story
where it stands now...
It's the beginning of the day
the middle to many others
and the realization comes
that this happens quite often
and the familiar faces were seen
and the names remembered that went with them
and the man in charge was doing
what he was told was important
and his peers were all now named subordinate
and the leader hollered and barked
directions and directives
yet he still kept his followers in the dark
and he reigned in the day
and relaxed at night
control through opression
motivation sprang from the hate it brought
the death toll was the cost
