Nobody deserved it

Nobody deserved it
To breathe like this
Or barely to breathe
But it was made to happen

By a couple men in suits
Some of the others
Were in different kinds of suits
Or armored uniforms

Now a flower of black
Blooms over the town
Over the entire county
And the people are asked to run

Away from their homes and wait
For the lawsuits to be completed
For stories to be told
With tired and hollow dismay

For decisions to be made
With empty-hearted greed
About potential contracts
And definitively contracted lives.
