If Only

If only
it had been raining that day.
If only someone else had
gotten in the way of the bullet
that sped
directly toward his head.

If only
the bubble to had been
in place
to block his face.
If only the car hadn't slowed down.
If only his head hadn't been turned just so.

If only someone had just
looked up,
and seen the open window.
What then?
What then?

We would have gotten a little
more time in Camelot,
and a perhaps a quicker end
to the blot of war.
