PATRICE VINCENT AND NATHAN CIRILLO (a poem)
Cowardly assailant with a car
Emulating villains from afar
Succeeded in killing with violent intent
Warrant Officer Patrice Vincent.
What a day, what a week!
News so shocking, one cannot speak,
From carefree coffee to dramatic strife.
Gunman took a soldier's life.
Nathan Cirillo stood in place
With welcoming and pleasant face
Now fallen, his cortege gently goes
Along our Highway of Heroes.
