Sonnet: Whore of Babylon

July 21, 2011

My feet are swollen, deformation, too –
This irradiation – thank you, Uncle Sam –
Or Whore of Babylon* – it is a coup
For Antichrist, and not the Great I AM.
The Military thinks this funny that
I get this torture, terrorism, or
(Also on level with the coarse-haired rat)
This is not Navy or the Marine Corps,
But is condemned by international treaty
(Torture Convention and the Geneva Code)
For devil, sadist, this is pretty meaty
And does like roadside armament explode.
If you think long enough on ill effects –
It is the way of hell, not the high road.

*That’s who we are in Revelation 17 – or the
Great (or Wealthy) Whore – the modern, “spiritual
Babylon,” not Iraq, who basically got destroyed by us.
