Poetry: ‘The Other 9/11’ by Ishmael Street (@ygb79 )

The Oth­er 911

On this day we are told to always remem­ber those

Who lost their life on the red, white, and blue Soil.

Yet, hid­den in the last pages of your his­tor­ic­al mor­al

Is another tragedy that hasn’t been told, a story on this date in

73 for those who lost their life on the red, white, and blue soil.

30,000 were mas­sacred in a coun­try pop­u­la­tion under of 10 mil­lion.

A army moved to take power dis­guised

As freedom fight­ers launched a bloody mil­it­ary coup by

Dic­tat­or Pinochet with back­ing of Nix­on and the CIA.

They stormed the area throw­ing the inno­cent in con­cen­tra­tion

Camps and tor­tur­ing them with so called “ enhanced inter­rog­at­ives Meth­ods“.

Some died because of these meth­ods or executed at first sight.

But this mas­sacre is accep­ted because of the fear of social­ism on the back the porch of the United States soil

and the mas­sacre of many and the human­ity deple­tion is jus­ti­fied in the con­texts of mon­et­ary the­or­ies hid­den in the doc­trines of the free mar­ket.

So on this day, we are told to always remem­ber those who lost their life on the red, white, and blue soil.

To not mourn for them but to learn for them.

The fol­low­ing two tabs change con­tent below.
