Raymond A. Foss Poems >>
The Focus of Our Rage

The requited anger
the focus of our rage
bin Laden gone,
buried in the water
in a watery grave
A hollow feeling
across the radio dial
person after person
speaking, wailing, railing
more on the hurting
the wounds reopened
no healing, no true resolution
by the death of the focus
a world's rage unrequited
by the death of terror
in the streets near Islamabad
