Poetry – Who are the Goons??

Who are the Goons??


Who are the goons?

The Zombies?

The mindless men in uniform

Who carry out the tyrant’s will?


Who are the thugs

Who follow the orders

To beat and shoot their own people?


Who are the torturers,

The Stormtroopers

And snatch squads??


The ones who enable the evil?

Who perpetuate fear and terror?

Who enjoy the power?


How do they become such heartless goons?


Do they think?

Do they feel?

Have they not got minds of their own?

Were they born

Machines of the state?

Or did they just grow mean?


Without the goons

Tyranny is powerless.

So who makes the goons?
