Picture Of An Arab Prisoner X - Poem by Fred Babbin

Man of Iraq
Human being
Trapped
Isolated
What will become of you?
What has your hate done?
What have those who hate
done to you?
Why is this necessary?
We are animals
that eat each other
in ways no other animal can-
with a maximum of pain and suffering
But so be it.
