Last Days of Pompeo… or of ‘Identity’ Politics?
by Raymond Nat Turner

His lips gurgled watery words,
His nostrils were an aching incinerator..
Still she taunted and tormented him about his acting, after she’d ordered him
Water-boarded for the 83rd time…

Screams were symphonies when she ran her Thai Black Site — and NO, Negroz, it wasn’t a place you could go get your groove on —
Wasn’t Cloud 9, or Psychadelic Shack — and NO, Negroz, these mad monsters are not nice, like in Movies…
Wrescking central nervous systems,
Demolishing personalities, making healthy people
Helpless ain’t nothing but a party to them.

and when her confirmation hearing comes,
You may wanna ask Lady Sadist:
Does she
Pine for rack and wheel, thumbscrew times?
Would she have personally presented Natives with smallpox-enhanced blankets, presided over Tuskegee syphilis experiments — or been a gleeful guard at Auschwitz or Buchenwald?
Does she meditate watching Mengele movies? Does she
Masturbate to torture tapes – cackling, “Who says Torture doesn’t work?” Does she devour human flesh, sans Hannibal Lester mask?

There’s blood on her hands — is it from smashing the glass ceiling?
