Chain Reaction

Image result for french jets bombs syria

The noise is as loud as explosions,

the air fired with paroxysms,

voiced anger, incredulity,

sound and fury

Merciless retaliation jumps to lips,

an act of war,

it’s a war for civilisation

And so, blood will have blood,

attack will be countered with revenge,

20 bombs dropped

Reprisal, retribution, payback

Attackers,

from hotbeds of jihadism,

who have been blooded in battle

There is no space

in which to absorb the shock,

rest, reflect, rationalize

Just detonations of clamour
