Defining The Terror 'Ism'
Back to poetry index
This piece of writing is a craft I am testing for it's profound pattern. As you see the word terrorism is down each column of three. The word has been so tossed around that I wanted to clarify what I found it to be both in the dictionary and in my mind from all we have been hearing on the news. This poem should be columned and spaced properly to have its full effect.
Defining The Terror ‘Ism’
The American Heritage Dictionary: n. "The political use of violence or intimidation."
Torturing traveling temperamental
Evil enigmatic enemies:
Relaying retaliatory rationales,
Reinforcing religious resentments,
Over opaque omnipotent
Royally righteous radicals
Inducing isolated ideological
Sovereign symbolism: statistically
Maintaining myopic madness
