Eddie Awusi




Bride Of Terrorism



Far removed from the society of man,

She tucked herself behind a dank and dingy night,

Behind the sound of eager muezzin;

Clad in mascara

And a black disenchanted chador;

a broken frame,

Governed by fears and extremism.

She loves her groom but hates the war.

Lumps her weak and slumped breast

Into the mouth of her infant baby,

that begs a question of the world.

Always led through monstrous indignity

Of sexual molestation and violation:

Tortured into compliance and complacence,

Fled from embattled cities into captivity,

This bearer of a caliphate’s tales.

What more cruel torture, barbaric killing,

Cursed overture, did her sight grip?

Dovetailing into the night,

Prayer book in arms.
