Poem: Chechnya

The harrowing stories

of electric shocks, brutal beatings

and starvation which many men

are facing or at risk of in Chechnya

is sickening to hear.

Barbaric abuse been launched

over the sexuality of these men

by animals in Camouflage

and their ordering counterparts.

Three deaths are known to have happened

though there could be more.

One man died in the concentration camp

while two more died in ‘honour killings’

carried out by very fucking strange relatives.

May they rest in peace.

Let these concentration camps end,

stop this torture,

let people live in peace.
