The Known Unknown


"Welcome to the funeral of ______"
"Please enter this way for a view body"
The people gather around the casket
To get one last look
No tears have fallen
No one is saddened by this lost

The widow approaches the casket
Deeply hurt by the death
She knows that there is nothing left
The lost of _____ is only felt by her

"______ was a beautiful spirit"
"She gave out of her need"
"She took time to nurture others"
"_____ will not be remembered"

One by one people come
Give their condolences to the hurt one
"Sorry for her death"
"The killing of _____ is tragic"

One by one the people are taken
In handcuffs by the police.
The charge: Murder
"She will not be missed"

"She had no name
No one bothered to learn of her
Yet they all benefited from her
The verdict: Guilty"
