Terrorists: 1

The terrorists won.
They redefined the game.
They set the standard
for how we are to be
from now on.

The terrorists have us living in fear
speaking in divisions
ignoring the use of shade or nuance
so all we see
is monochrome.
We are servants of the terrorists
for we live
at the behest of their shadows.

Well played, terrorists.
It worked as you supposed.
You’ve won.
For your sake,
I hope the victory isn’t pyrrhic
but even if not,
I’m unsure you’ll enjoy the spoils.
