Sorrowful Spectacle

Even the periphery will suffer,
not just those in the seats and stands but
the vendors at the nearby storefronts,
the students sleeping in study halls,
those in cars merely passing through;
all will suffer by mere presence
of such sorrow, they will
scarcely know why,
this sudden wave of something
misidentified as an internal thought,
(for the mind is unwilling to believe itself connected)
and as such the spectacle will never cease,
as all believe it does not affect them.
