Sectarian Violence

Endless incantation 
of the same idea
confers the provenance
of truth.

Searchlight certainty
shines brightest
on apostates
and idolaters.

Sturdy bells of
proud, indignant faith
summon, doubtless, the devout
to worship and revenge.

In the name of what’s divine
cherished morsels of contempt
nourish tumors
of incurable malignancy.
