The Firing Squad

by Venky

Pelting stones and setting things alight

When caught by the  police & left nary of any delight;

“Reason?” they were asked.

‘EPOCH!’ they screamed before being shot

I like this. Were you envisioning gangs, or something else?

Was just thinking about civil wars and other internecine conflicts.
