Poetic Injustice

Poem in response

A poem in response to “Peering in the Dark Corners,” by Catherine Woodiwiss (July 2013), on U.S. covert wars and drone warfare:
Background noise, / Soldier’s toys, / Remote control chaos. / Blameless killing, / Dentist drilling, / Soul spilling. / Nation unawares, / Who cares? / The cancer grows.

James Halliday
La Fayette, Georgia

This appears in the September-October 2013 issue of Sojourners
