Guantanamo : Strange Fruit

Guantanamo Detainees, Defense Lawyers Continually Gagged in Military Tribunals: Report | Common Dreams.

american flags from red wounds
blue bruises     shredded pulp
of human flesh
people torn from ancestral lands
for brown skin   blankets
of blood    bouquets
of ripped muscle
the human rose
beat to blood sap    stomped light
crushed back    broken bones
blown up
balloon hands
heads drowned     chained to cold
concrete     starved & suffocated    forced
to take drugs    american citizens safe
comfortable from the agony
& murder
of brown people
