karo kari

make no mistake
karo kari and honor killings
and chattel trading will continue
we are corrupt - to the core
morally bankrupt too
forget spine - we don't have vertebras
words are all we have
stripped of meaning
empty, fading, decaying - words
they meant something to someone - once
are murder weapons today
in bearded bigoted hands
and without spine
it is hard to stand up - or stand up to
we cannot yell - we whimper

curse me, hug me, cry with me
am a decaying not-yet-dead muslim
