Did He See The Bullet Coming
By Dave Emmerson

Did he see the bullet coming
Did he hear the sound of flight
Did he get time to recall
His short and meanful life
Did time stand still
Did he try to run and hide
Did he feel the pain
Of the bullet
Piercing his skin
Did he get time to say
His last farewells
To those who loved him
To those who cared
Did he get time to pray
To ask for forgiveness
For those who robbed him
Who took his life so soon
Did he get time to ask
Why he was there
In this foreign land
Where people were so cruel
And nobody ever was kind
Did he stop and ask
And wondered why
