The Boston Bombers - Poem by Francis Duggan

People who feel marginalized human society can grow to hate
These are the people our flawed Governments and in our attitude to difference we can create
The Boston Marathon bombing brothers too had a mum and a dad
And like all children are as children they were not bad
The eldest of the brothers is already dead
He died as he lived of him it can be said
They caused death and destruction and horrific injuries to people on a Boston Street
To people they did not know or may never might meet
For to become a murderer a mother does not raise her son
But worse crimes than the Boston Bombers by others are done
People are dying in acts of terrorism in Iraq every day
As the legacy of a war created by Governments from there far away
The youngest of the Boston Bomber brothers with his life may pay
But such things are happening in the World every day.
