Carte Blanche

May 18, 2011
What can we say to that iron fist, that title of fear?
Carte blanche, with a paper trail
The press listing violations of human rights,
Like a slap to the face, you strike your enemies with


“Go face the firing squad
If you’re rash enough to rebel.”
Rot in a prison cell, wait for death to strike.
Be one of the many who starve.

Horrors like these are so unfamiliar to us
yet halfway across the world
they occur on a daily basis .
For more than half a century they have endured,
And still there’s no tipping point.
