Unfortunate

 

The twenty one gun salute
at the funeral
of a family and a fighting man
was flawless

But in the use
of live ammo

the flock of pigeons
who happen to be
present, was depleted

Then the widow
smiles all the same
knowing her husband
would have laughed so hard
at this
unfortunate event
