The Torture Question

when we buy gasoline, have coffee,
peel a banana, do we think of
torture as good and necessary

or it's too bad shackling a man,
woman or child to a metal bed frame,
a rough, blotched floor of cement

and whisper to them, see what you
make me do, look while you still
have eyes, this is your doing

it's not us
