A Topical Poem

What Kind of God?

The toy plane comes out of the blue
And zaps the tower as it would do
In comics or cartoon, but this is true.

A hundred storeys up, stick people
Wave little banners of forlorn humanity,
Already fatally diminished
To their gawping fellow-kind
Before the crumbling hell engulfs them.

It’s said the terrorists’ god,
Unfazed by death of innocents,
Will take his fanatics to unending bliss.
What kind of god is this?

Lesley Duncan
