Seems appropriate 
that going back to normal
includes reminders

of awful people
doing awful things without
any consequence

still dominating
the headlines—helicopters
hovering above

filling the time slots
they did not know how to fill
while they were in jail

or bombing unknown
countries they knew they did not
know how much they knew

America’s sad defense
