Balmy poetry it makes:

these machinations of nations

gutting others, through

their policies of sanctions.


‘Rebuilding’, not occupying,

Democratizing, not invading

the hymen of the civilized others…

or the barbarians?


Liberalizing the world’s Souk,

While securing their own Christkindlmarkts.

Democracy is now the mot juste

for being a barefaced bully.
