War: Part Three

Anonymous murder: Bombers do what bombers do
Casually destroying, casually killing
Upturned puzzled faces in roofless trenches
Soldiers blown to smithereens from above.

Anonymous slaughter: Engineers do what engineers do
Bombs scattering down, innnocents’ disintegrate,
Cities cratered, re- shaped, revealed.
Guernica: Art nurtured in death.

Anonymous assassination: Technocrats do what technocrats do
Terror created. Terror delivered. Fearfulness
Deadly drone death warrants.
Video game horror made real.
