I am a weapon of mass destruction

By lolwut

I am the silence that follows thunders of drone attacks,
of bewilderment at the capability of man,
to kill,
children wearing rags, in tent-cities,
on lands colonized, occupied
ancient,
pawns of man's malice

I am the dark skin crawling out from under the White Man's Burden.

I am the savage that looks you straight in the eye,
uncowering, unabashedly defiant,
my sandled-feet caked with the dust stirred
by bombing campaigns

I am the intellectual who
sits here, on a sunny summery morning,
reading the news on the internet
of causalities, of peace talks and of war,

wrapped by the mists of seeping cups of tea, a warm cat,
the sounds of suburban lawns trimmed,
of laughter

and of a choking knot
in my throat
that just won't break.
