Blurred ambulance lights at nighttime.

Early morning lights in the sky,
harbingers of death abound.
Ambulances, then news crews,
seen over the razor wire without a sound.
Again, day goes by with no answers.
It’s night again, the lights are back,
two more ambulances.
Here at Dade,
now, more answers we lack.
