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.

Poem of the Day

poet John Clare

I love to see the old heath's withered brake
Mingle its crimpled leaves with furze and ling,
While the old heron from the lonely lake
Starts slow and flaps its melancholy wing,
