The permanence of the stain

Four-and-a-half hours
Blood, forlorn, pooling on pavement

What misplaced sense of justice
To deny the question
What slithering sanctimony
To walk away smirking
What fervent delusion
To clothe this naked emperor

As if namelessness could
End the story
As if namelessness could
Change the past
As if namelessness could
Remove this stain
