Born to Kill

A Poem by Luke Nelson

Open up one eagle eye

For you were born to kill

Arm yourself against the night

For you were born to kill

Sip the sweet scent of nicotine

For you were born to kill

Wish away the silent screams

For you were born to kill

Bandages wrapped around bloodied hands

For you were born to kill

Say your prayers and make your demands

For you were born to kill

And when you return home remember the line

That you were born to kill

When you return home forget the grisly crimes

Because you

Were born to kill
