The Terrorist


Carry your anger
in a heavy bag
filled with nails
and sharp shards
of hate, honed to
a hard edge of
murder.

When you see
their bright smiles
you will know
it is time
to ignite
your Inspired
device.

Poet's Notes about The Poem

“People who know nothing of God and whose lives are centered on themselves.... can only conceive one way of becoming real: cutting themselves off from other people and building a barrier of contrast and distinction between themselves and other men. They do not know that reality is to be sought not in division but in unity, for we are ‘members one of another.“ - Thomas Merton, from New Seeds of Contemplation

poet Katharine Lee Bates

O beautiful for spacious skies,
For amber waves of grain,
For purple mountain majesties
Above the fruited plain!
America! America!
