we

we -- the performing seals:
smack our flippers together
aplauding

the wonderful poem

we -- the barbarous --
retreat to our homes
and smile, remembering
the splendidly spoken poem

we -- the unforgiven --
do not question --
we groan
at the thought


we -- the murderers --
we -- the murderers --
we, the unknown
murderers
