Ambiguous War Of Terror

they have it in for us
do they not? - but why?
they have a heart
searing itself of hate - and die?
evil pain that our would-be
slayers use to fuel wild fire
burning for a single purpose - a lie
that is fullfilled by us
the Americans who dare
lead the world, our new world
raptured in a cataclysm of hypocrisy

Its great just as you have written it........regards.....willow
Concise and powerful. Could you think of another word instead of 'raptured', so as to make the poem have a greater impact?
wow i love this poem well i have a few about soldiers but not many u should look them up some time and see if u like them well ttyl
Dear Trunami, So invariably true. I wrote a five page poem immediately after the 9/11 tragedy but considered it too politically charged so have never allowed anyone else to look upon it; perhaps that may change as I seem to be seeing more and more of these. Gregory
To the point. Questioning indeed. Neat piece.
