Daginne Aignend






War machinery is a depraved trade

Camouflaged with a sauce of

peacemaking and humanitarian aid

doesn’t make it less vicious

Humanity’s decay

After all,

A moldy bread

adorned with marmalade

still remains a moldy bread











Broken, being no longer

in one piece

Torn, pulled or ripped apart

in pieces with force

The dictionary explains what

my body and spirit already knew




For being true

to myself

as I destroy you
