thoughts, one month later

a pressure cooker
was used as an explosive device
this cooking pot
for the creation of nourishment
to butcher an innocent crowd
once a harmless vessel
now filled to the brim
with agony
and simmering hate
to be doled out with terror
what kind of hunger
drives someone to invent
such a recipe?

It's so horrible to think a simple product intended to feed and nourish was used to kill innocent people. Thank you for your powerful poem.

Thanx so much for your comment, Nancy -- and isn't it tho? I was just struck by that the cook of our family I see a pot and I think, food, nourishment...home, love. And with their perversion of that object they targeted families, children. What kind of mutation, if you will, causes that? It is horrible to think of, indeed.
