The Quaker lady

who wont stop praying

even though the Grand Inquisitor

nails her tongue to her palette.

Painful memories sear:

The Munich massacre of ’72,

and the PLO gives Klinghoffer

the old heave ho.

Nobody pays attention

when shit-kicking Southerners

bury Andy Goodman and two friends

in a damn.

And the Lord must have been asleep

when the sneak attack explodes

on that infamous Sunday morning,

paving the way for 60 million to perish.

Bombs fall,

and blood runs

as drones swoop down

like hungry hawks

obliterating prey

Only the stench of the mad-eyed beast

of radical evil remains.
