Our Contempt, Their Requite

Photographer: Suhaib Salem

We have invaded,

destroyed infrastructure, culture, families

 

We demolished, wrecked, shattered

and then

retreated

to the comfort of Western Democracies

 

Only to return

to pulverize, macerate, annihilate

again

 

They trounced now

will seek total revenge

if not this generation

but a future one

 

Then the earth beneath

our guilty feet

will tremble

with the power

of their retribution
