A Soldier's Dilemma

What you aim at,
is not an
empty can
perched atop a 
snowy fence post,
nor is it a 
shadowy deer
gliding through 
your autumn forest.
your hand steady,
your eye focused,
your finger gentle

on the trigger, 

you plot 

to end the life of a 
brother human being,
lest he

end yours.
