The Suicide Bomber

The suicide bomber
Writes
A scarlet letter
To the world

His obsession
Is our fear

He uses his bones
To pry his way
Into the stories
Of our lives

His sacrifice
Is our anger

He places
His flesh
On the margins
Of our souls

His madness
Is our frustration

He spills his blood
Over the surfaces
Of the pages
We love

His reason
Is our ignorance

He inscribes
Himself
Into the walls
That surround us

His cruelty
Is our revenge

He flings
The edge
Of his message
At our hearts

His future
Is our failure
