Aaron Burr

Sweet the call of revenge, how sweet,
Political intrigue in the highest offices –
lilting sadly across the choppy waters onto Jersey shores.
He said goodbye to mother, sister, daughter –
bad farewell in case his shot rang false
Or Hamilton dismissed his cause as apropos.

The shot rang true and
Office lost
Phaeton fell.
