The House of Saud executed 47 souls today.
They say they were mostly Al Qaeda, “They Say”.
I don’t know much about that. But I do know,
beheadings, firing squads, electric chairs, and needles,
Executed by the state are no better than ISIS.
On Facebook, I watched a young American man kill,
A sweet white Samoyed by dropping her off a bridge,
To a horrible broken death on the bleak concrete below.
There are no limits to human cruelty.
Yet no limits to the beauty that surround us.
I turned off the internet and offered my hand,
To the woman I love. Together, we went out for a walk.
We prefer to witness firsthand a true Devil’s Punchbowl;
Swirling, transcending pools, with waterfalls illimitable.
