Execution Without Trial

Execution Without Trial

John Kipling remembered, d. 1915

Our mechanized assassin
Brought down the Paki hive
We murdered teenage Izabel
No fiend was left alive.

Who made our drone of terror?
Who steered it from our base?
Who calmly watched our weapon burst?
And rip-off half her face...

We cheaply kill without a trial
With orders from on high
Till Fatima retaliates...
Then who'll be next to die?
