Shrapnel juts out of bones and plaster
Filling of iron shards
Inches from the spinal cord
Scrap of exploded kitchen metal.
Next door to the alleged training center
Home in Miram Shah Pakistan
7 deaths, 4 injured, 0 children death, 0 civilian deaths, in strike on a house.
This weaponry is new
Video game controller guides fiberglass and steel
Armed and fired with the “X” button,
Desert of Nevada.
Young man who grew up with controller in hand
Call of Duty one day,
Duty calls the next.
Home in mountains in Pakistan
4 injured, 7 confirmed deaths.
Alleged training facility in a country where no war has been declared.
Psyche of a boy at a controller,
Given power and anonymity
Executing 10,000 miles around the world.
