The Killing Fields by Gig Ryan
The journo heroically watches the bomber planes dive
His mawkish face backtracks, sees headlines
that is, money...
Back home, he flips through the video
stalking news, his hands full of gore he didn't cause
Wisely he writes "the despicable Khmer Rouge"
the ditch of bones fired by fervour
for an "inhuman" ideology ...
He's artistic, uninvolved,
weeping for the source's loss. His big American heart throbs
and gets paid
