Told that it isn't alive

We are told that it isn't alive
We should feel no emotion
Over a piece of flesh
It is not the whole
Just a part of the puzzle
Disconnected Rejected 
Corpora mortuorum: et circumdabunt nos
Ecce vide corpora tam pulchram mortem pose
We choose the easy way
Not the hard
Because of the moment
An unwanted consequence
It was coincidence
Or a random chance
From an emotion or urge
Called passion
A pool of blood, a society's wrath
And we called it a different word
To avoid the responsibility
But it doesn't work
Like that
It does not work
Like that
