 First Responder

I went to check a pulse

And when I turned her head

Her face was gone

Instead of a face

There were a million wordless thoughts

And thousand sacrilegious prayers

Instead of a little girl

We’d become a body

In the bushes, gunned down 

Without a face

No one smiles

You can’t even a frown
