a study of assassination

a beautiful shot is what you would call it
a well thought out plan expertly executed

what else would you expect for one million pounds
paid via wire transfer to the caymans

the most important thing was the publicity
entire world knowing the end of the end is near

the fighting & the lies & the supersonic missiles
surprisingly cease to be talking points

the mainstream media & the underground unite
all because of a terroristic precision strike

fired from two hundred fifty yards away
hitting its integral & intended target

march two thousand twenty-two
