A Man

And after he died, they said what an excellent man was he, to devote his life to one cause or another and neglect himself to cancer and early death. But they did not know the man who walked their streets and helped them grow, as he was a Russian spy who had murdered many Americans with bullets and gas and the bombs. Not just that, but he did not die from cancer as was reported by his long ignorant wife, ignorant until the day before his death due to a revealing letter, but by suicide brought on by poison. He was a harsh critic of himself since his own self-imposed exile, coming to terms with the end he brought upon boys younger than he. Becoming a philanthropist to his locality in rural America did help none and thus at the end of suicide lay freedom from his own conscious.
