Deadly Truths

They killed Jesus.
They killed Lincoln.
They killed JFK, RFK
Martin Luther King.

Mahatma Gandhi murdered
on his way to pray.

Even John Lennon killed
for daring to imagine?
Whenever the truth is spoken, it seems
someone has to die.

(The first public presentation of this poem was on The Jeff Farias Show, Apr.8,2010.)
