Dedicated to the LGBT Community in Muslim Territories.
It transpired in a remotely temperate territory;
Mobs anticipated the 21st century scourging.
As the pariahs trudged through the roaring crowds
Then seized the center stage with ignominy.
As the 85 lashes were one by one received
Held in a bad form, harrowing bruises it’ll leave.
The atrocities were then immortalized in a video
Sanctified to deter youths from becoming homos.
But what about the crime committed against humanity?
While droves scorn, diminishing someone else’s dignity.
I asked myself, as it unravelled itself in savagery
“Were they still trapped in the late 16th Century?”
For you don’t have to agree with homosexuality
In order to side with propriety and morality.
So why do all this uncalled-for brutality?
Now I’m baffled as to whose side deserved pity.
Would it be the tortured souls on the dais
Or the degenerates that deemed this praiseworthy?
