' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' ' God Spelt Properly - Poem by Dónall Dempsey

Trains arrived at Bangledish
full of death or dying

blood seeps under carriage doors
women with breasts cut off with machetes

all in the name
of partition/religion

the chauffer chats
of the recent past

struggling through
Chittagong traffic.

'There is only one God! '
I am assured

religion after religion

and I am glad
because one is bad enough

imagine
if they were dozens

all wrecking havoic

vieing for the same belief
in us little bunch of humans

I believe
in none

only in a good
that's done.

'Good' is 'God'
spelt properly.
