Professor Chaos - Evil

Poem - Concluding Answer

One of the end goals of the alt-right ethnocentrism is ethnic cleansing, defined as “the mass expulsion or killing of members of an unwanted ethnic or religious group in a society”. The argument goes that ethnocentrism is not focused on the cleansing. It is instead focused on the end result, with the middle being the natural necessity. This blind spot is a very scary place. I address it in the poem “Concluding Answer”.

Concluding Answer

They come at night with ill intent
holding papers in gloved hands
sourced from the government
signed by the Commandant

uniforms and sturdy boots
exclaim control as their domain
demanding order to perpetrate
chaos spawned from biting hate

restricted to the shadow realm
the blessed saints with never see
justice taken with the club
cleansing made in their name

vans are readied at the curb
moving cargo now abhorred
taken to a destiny
far from sight, to be deceased

values have deemed what’s wrong
dogma slanted to save the world
facts are discarded except to say
the unwanted will disappear

the darkest night may be the last
with dawn as witness to charnel pits
bullets spent in holy quest
concluding answer to the plan.
