    The idea was to kill the Idea.


    Rid it from the face of the earth.


    Uproot it from the mind of my enemy.


    Try as I might my screams didnt evcuate the idea.


    His death was a sure way to erase it.




    Then it became clear his children would remember.


    Ridding the world of the idea required their elimination.


    Unswerving from my commitment I performed the task.


    There were those who observed the deed.


    Having in their heads The idea for which I killed.




    Their scarafice was the only choice.


    Resolute in the need of my mission, I heaved a sigh.


    Undaunted by the horror I set for home.


    The faces of my children were a glorious pleasure.


    Holding them close and loving them dear.




    They looked at my blood smeared face and hands.


    Rising in their eyes were questions.


    Unbeliving their Father could take a life.


    They asked "Father why did you kill the nieghbors?".


    How can I tell them why I killed,"I have no idea"?

    Kill an idea is difficualt but you can certainly discourage those who have it from killing those who disagree with the idea.

    As to the poem itself I've seen better in fact I may well have written better and on a similar subject.

    With a pounding of the drums

    came a roarin' of the guns

    and the Cowards turned and ran

    while the brave died to a man

    and the ground it was all gory

    with those who died for futile glory

    Where lies the glory in a death

    died by many in one breath

    for a yard of barren ground

    and for reward not e'en a fun'ral mound?
