State of Terror

(Click to Enlarge)

stop
connect the dots
the bloody trail
explosions
assassinations

stop
prevent the murders.
why would the/y
stop the bombings

no way the/y
would trust
where does that
leave us

are we sure
can’t messages be
misdirected

damn
keep making
same mistake

stop
connect the dots
the blood…

About this poem, taken from page 143 of the novel “State of Terror,” Lenora says, “The word in the poem was ‘the’ but I needed ‘they’ so I added the ‘y’ as ‘the/y’ in two places. If that’s too confusing you have my permission to fix as you desire. I just didn’t know how to show my change. Also, I used the arrow to show the partial repeat of the first stanza.” — Lenora Rain-Lee Good
