Hellfire

08 Mar
The president boasted on network TV
of a drone strike killing a suspected terrorist
from an infamous ring
as if it were something to be proud of

only later to find out
the hellfire drone roasted a family
of nine children whose father 
was working with a humanitarian organization
feeding the hungry of his country

the media never admitted the horrendous mistake
of this friendly-fire outrage,
nor did the president. 

The judge of the universe heard
the screams of those innocent children
and there will be hell to pay.
