Evidence on a White Wall

A residue of blood-soaked holes
failed to hit their intended target
on men lined up to be assassinated.
We will never know all their names
as they were selected at random
from men of conscience who spoke up.
Someone will write a great poem
about what soldiers were ordered to do.
