WHEN THE PAIN CAME

Vengeance
In the name
Of the God
Of Abraham
In one, fatal
Final step

Power seized
For the moment
Pain caused
For someone else
Perceived, as
Less than human

Only mankind
Can be such
A beast–to
Kill, those
Disagreed with

An impossible
Task, tried
Many times
Before, by
Despots, dictators
The desperate

Hard to imagine
It happening
Again, in the
Twenty-first
Century

Seize the
Moment, while
We still can
Because the
Pain kills
More every day
