Our Justification, by Paul Brookes

for the gang rape
and killing
of your eight year old
Child
Is that, like you,
She was
Not human
And therefore
Not under
The rights
And privileges
Of humans.

You must
Be tolerant
Of our beliefs
If you wish
To stay
On our land.

Her screams
Were just
Those
Of
Any
Animal
And do not
Justify
Your action against us.
