waterboarding

Waterboard me all you want
You will never make me deny this love.
Place me naked in the open air,
I will freeze, silent and defiant.
Place splinters under my fingernails,
Thank you, sir, may I have another?
Whip me and ask for denial,
I will give you chucks of skin but no satisfaction.
Pour salt on me
You’ll only get empty screams.
No white flag will go up.
As death closes in,
My blood covered teeth will sneer at you.
I will growl like a wolf at your savagery,
But will not give you the answer you desire.
There is no moral,
There is no kiss off to the fable.
If you want a chair,
Then I remain in love, an enemy, a table.
