Families Will Mourn


Warrior bold, slip on your armoured smile,
take away another life with a sigh,
be quick, it will only haunt for awhile,
look deep within eyes that flicker then die.

Take away another life with a sigh,
murdering brethren in the name of God,
look deep within eyes that flicker then die,
skin will waste slowly on top of the sod.

Murdering brethren in the name of God,
families will mourn in another time,
skin will waste slowly on top of the sod,
perhaps they will forgive you of this crime.

Families will mourn in another time,
move on from that death to one more sweet life,
perhaps they will forgive you of this crime,
kill it with passion, with bullet or knife.

Move on from that death to one more sweet life,
be quick, it will only haunt for awhile,
kill it with passion, with bullet or knife.
warrior bold, slip on your armoured smile.

The pantoum is a rare form of poetry similar to a villanelle. It is composed of a series of quatrains; the second and fourth lines of each stanza are repeated as the first and third lines of the next. This pattern continues for any number of stanzas, until the final stanza, which usually contains the first and third lines of the first stanza as its second and fourth lines. Often, the final stanza's fourth line is the poem's first, and the third line of the poem may or may not appear as the second line of the final stanza. Ideally, the meaning of lines shifts when they are repeated although the words remain exactly the same: this can be done by shifting punctuation, punning, or simply recontextualizing.The pantoum is originally Malayan and is adopted infrequently to English.
