After seeing a newspaper photo of the Oaklahoma City Bobming Memorial, I was most struck by the pictures of the victims.

Some were white,

Some were black,

Some were brown.

Some were young,

Some were old,

Some were just babies.

Some were working,

Some had errands,

Some had plans.

In many ways,

All were innocent.

All were gone in

a matter of seconds.

The banality of evil,

A zoning board hearing

and the mournful sound

Of a cartoon song...

I love you, you love me...

The last four lines threw me for a moment, but then realized they fit perfectly. Well done.
