Good Friday 2016

They jailed MLK for marching on Good Friday, 1963. Waited a while to kill him.


Nothing Good about it unless
eternity. But for now, on any
day, including Fridays, we cage
and burn Lt. Muath Al-Kasasbeh, 
expendible at 26; we care too late
for Mr. Charles R. Ingram III, 51,
Navy, perishing ashore in gasoline
flames at the Northfield VA (closed
on Saturdays).
