CIA Torture Report: Illusions of Legitimacy

December 11, 2014
The recently released CIA Torture Report prompted my posting of this poem titled, Illusions of Legitimacy. Written in March 2008, it is taken from my unpublished poetry compilation, Drunk, I Wasn’t Drinking.


Illusions of Legitimacy
By N Oji Mzilikazi

When it comes to the blight that is terrorism
No war is thought of as being in error
Even in the face of skewed facts, dubious intel
Or if it will bring the world closer to that Hour
Nothing must obstruct global Pax Americana…
