DISCOVERY
Bruce Louis Dodson

Our enemy is faster
Without doubts and
Unencumbered by the cloth of ethics
Without mercy
Wearing skins of every race
Beyond the reach of simple justice.

Do not think that he is beaten in a single battle
Or in many
He will follow us through lifetimes
Killing as he goes
Unseen by most
And weakened only be the love of men
For one another
Strengthened by their hate and anger.

Do not feed him!

  2. Excellent. This needs to be published elsewhere.

    This really is very good. It’s a shame that once a poem has been published in one place, it becomes so much harder to publish it anywhere else.
