I shoot by night
without daylight,
the civilian form
in my night sight.

One form was ten;
his name was Bin,
the civilian form
I shot again.

They shoot back blind;
they're in a bind,
the civilian form
of the Iraqi kind.

I'll come back home
and write this poem,
of the civilian form
laid under that dome.

Very deep and powerful. Sounds like civilians were shot by accident.

Poignant and meaningful. Love and peace to you,

The stupidity of the previous comment allows the reader to appreciate even more the simple and frightening truth of your poem.
Great concision, striking words.

Greetings,

Axilea

Sounds like a good plan to me.
