In a Moment's Time


The presses might have stopped in their tracks
Television might have shut down mid-commercial
The Internet might have gone off-line, and
The War might never have begun -
If only for one moment of praise.
But none of this happened -
While those of us who know -
And those of you who knew
Silently morn the passing
Of an impeccable hero.
