Trapped

Here I am, stuck in this elevator
staring at a picture of soldiers
fighting for my freedom.
The tragedy of Desert Storm.
I’m reminded of Joan of Arc,
being sacrificed in fire on a stake.
False accusations of being a witch,
now soldiers, sacrificed in another witch hunt
for weapons of mass destruction.
Freedom is at stake, and I’m
held captive, stuck in this elevator.
