The Edge of Darkness



Who armed the hunters
With the knife?
Who sent them out
With words of hate?

No prayers can turn them round.
No tears can bring them home.

One strangled no
Echoes round the towering dead.
The innocent and the guilty
Comingled in the smoke and dust
Within our shaking heads,
Dumb disbelief,
Words frozen and unsaid.
We who watch the world unseam
Share with the haunted minds
Which sit and scheme
The awkward questions ...


Who armed the hunters
With the knife?
Who sent them out
With words of hate?


No prayers can turn them round.
No tears can bring, them home.

The whole world knows that Osama Bin Laden was trained and armed by the CIA. The whole world knows that members of his family were smuggled out of the US after 9/11. The whole world knows that Sadaam Hussein gassed the Kurds with munitions and technology supplied by the west. The whole world knows that the US government continued to fund him after this crime had been committed. So why are the criminals who did this still in government and not in the dock?
