Intifada Lost ... a poem by Anne Selden Annab

Intifada Lost

Resistance....How can you not see
the crowds
and militancy growing
religious tyranny taking hold
taking over- taking all...

How can you not feel
your own hate boomerang back
the i'm rubber you're glue
and escape

The conflict changes
grows its own fangs and daggers
eviscerating life

builds its own prisons
and pyres

harp on half truths
celebrate cartoons
scorn diplomacy
alienate friends...

What kind of future do you see
as Islamists ascend and implode.
