Boghos L. Artinian: Unwitting-vehicle bomber

Boghos Artinian is a 65 years old physician practicing in Beirut since 1968, and writing poetry since 1982. This poem has appeared in the website Poets Against War.

The perpetrators were terrorists sly,
For they chose someone who didn't love to die;
A spinster who happened to work at a site
They wanted to penetrate and ignite!
While she slept they booby trapped her car,
And next morning they watched the embassy afar.
When her car, unchecked, entered the compound
They blew it up; just bits of her were found.

Boghos L. Artinian MD
