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?
