Hunted Worst Than Terror Suspects - Poem by Terence George Craddock (afterglows echoes of starlight)

in China
government
power freaks
lock up
target artists
throw away
freedom keys
Funny

how dictator
governments torture
tortured artists
Ai Weiwei struggles
to achieve justice
transparency

artists who attempt
personal martyrdom forms
freedom fighting
finger flipping
single digit finger
at suppressive authority
seeking a just open society
will be Julian Assange

hunted worst than terror suspects
