Define and refine

The vanity of it all.
Sharply defined likes and dislikes.
Refined over time, apparently.
Your complicated ideas,
or the infinitely complex person?


Again. AGAIN.
Heroic tales will be told
brave souls will be remembered and honoured.
After the hows
we'll run around like headless chicken asking why.
Is the solution stricter laws?
an armed policeman on every square foot of our land?
No, no, NO.
Spare a thought for the man in uniform who goes in, knowing that there is every chance he won't survive.
For whom or what does he willingly risk his life?
Is the Home minister, who announces on live TV the number and arrival time of commandos, worthy of the brave soldier's sacrifice?
Is the media team, that consciously decides to air such information in real time, worthy of the brave soldier's sacrifice?
My head is splitting, and my blood boils.
Again. AGAIN.
