What The Killers Really Want

What The Killers Really Want

As horrendous killing rears its head once more,

In an airport, a Metro, a city.

Humanity’s appalled, traumatised to its core.

We wring our hands in rage, in shock, in pity.

One more time, one more day, one more outrage.

In wordless astonishment, unspeakable atrocity.

No warning, no alarm, no clearing of the stage,

The terror deepened by its chilled rapidity.

Anger boils, resentment grows, revenge an easy mauling,

Hear the range of easy vengeance targets rise,

Innocent believers of a different calling,

What the killers want—all Muslims blamed in many eyes.

I have no easy answer, salve or cure

For the evil guised in ISIL’s name,

But of one thing certain I am sure,

NOT EVERY MUSLIM IS TO BLAME.
