The Oldest Question (Rewritten)

A Turkish air freighter crashed down in a village of simple, if not poor, homes in Kyrgyzstan.  Of the nearly forty people killed, only a half dozen were believed onboard the plane.
What suffering luck…what transgression against an unswerving god…what impossible knit of formulae and numbers…what failure of grace forces down an airliner that plows fire and destruction into a village of sleeping innocents?
Was a marked man on the plane or on the ground?
--Mitchell Hegman


  1. It was but an ordinary day in the lab and in the petri dish called Earth!

  2. So very true. It is all about the chances of chances.
