Torture IS Terror

Torture IS Terror…

1.

we’ve seen  barbarity of ISIL

we’ve seen the orange jumpsuits

we’ve seen the savagery of beheading a human-being

we’ve seen aircraft filled with people used as missiles

we’ve seen the brutality of the Taliban

of Boko-Haram
Lashkar-e-Toiba
Abu-Sayyaf
AQAP
AQIM

brutal cowards who
rape
kill
maim
behead

we’ve seen so much

2.

we’ve seen the “black-hole” that is Guantanamo

conveniently off-shore in the land of Cuba

we’ve seen the orange jumpsuits

we’ve heard of barbaric water-boarding

we’ve heard of  Black-Sites dotted around the globe

we’ve seen the drone strikes remotely controlled like the latest X-Box

we’ve witnessed the razing of homes by the IDF

we’ve seen the invasion of countries

the descent into chaos of entire nations

we’ve seen too much

You cannot fight Terror with Terror!

Torture IS Terror!

Kobane Stands …
( October 13th 2014 )

the marauders push on,

the fascist flag of hate,

limp,
flaccid,

yet conceited,
puffed – up,

its arrogance straining against the free wind,

and yet,

and still,

Kobane stands!

“I’d rather die on my feet, than live on my knees” –

Emiliano Zapata
( 1879 – 1919 )

For Pastor Martin Niemoller (1892 – 1984)

when,

the hushed rage of prejudice rejoices in triumphant pomp and hateful ceremony,

and,

the silent dagger of complicit racism plunges deep into the soul of a world bereft of hope,

and,

the long knife of embraced apathy twists and turns,

then,

perhaps we’ll open our opaque eyes,

and perhaps then we’ll open our sewed-up mouths,

and perhaps only then will we whimper in mock shock and startled surprise,

for,

the festering hate that spirals around us,

in the fertile minds of quasi-religious bigotry,

is unafraid,

and speaks in the loudest baritone.

2.

Yet,

we accept,

we acquiesce,

we wish it all away,

but,

there will come that time when the lines are drawn,

when the purest hearts of silently smiling bigotry will hold the world in their sway,

with their cherubic, agreeable arguments sprinkled with pieces of fact that will kill, rape, pillage, and slay…

what then,

I ask,

will we do that day?

” … First they came for the Socialists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Socialist.

Then they came for the Trade Unionists, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Trade Unionist.

Then they came for the Jews, and I did not speak out—
Because I was not a Jew.

Then they came for me—and there was no one left to speak for me … ” – Pastor Martin Niemoller
