Bomb Construction

Once the goal is set
the rest is simple –
all you have to do is
understand a target's routines.

Buy a suitcase.
Add some plasticine.
Obtain a timing device.

Attach a few wires
then plant the weapon
at the right site.

Some time later
over a glass of cool campari
read about the events
without thinking too deeply –

So many targets
still moving
There is something very cold-hearted about this. Did you expect terrorism to be a warm affair? No, but I do expect more remorse. Some people are beyond remorse. When that happens, God help us.
