There are no breaking news at the moment

 

I flinched
and hid myself to evade her

but she spotted me,
her prey.

Clad in a national dress,
and waving the flags of patriotism

in the air she came and raped me,
scratching my face with razor sharp nails.

Red, blood red were her eyes
burning with rage

as she thundered
her national song again and again.

Xenophobia as a tongue
lurked out from her mouth.

Before her, I stood lifeless as a log,
as a mere corpse in fog

before the most
venomous girl on Earth.

    If the ‘ venom ‘ is not rooted out
    It may post more problems than the deadliest of cancer
