Hate Speech

An excerpt from the three hundred and ninety two (392) page book - The Terrorist Inclinations - by Victor Ehighaleh.

A forerunner of pogrom and genocide
Starts almost innocently
Rapidly gathers momentum
Momentum so catastrophic.

Open sore in people's heart
Speech widens sore
Interactions increase it
Terrorism buds.

Budding process so rapid
Travels faster than light
Picks up stones along its path
Imminent danger appears.

Old and young subscribing
The world in a swamp
Roof on the floor
Floor has become roof.

Along its path
Harvest of sorrow and death
Who will stop the tide?
Oh! Hate speech.
