Fear of Terrorism

T raumatized tortured tumultuous feelings of trepidation
E ncapsulating effervescing emotions everywhere eventually
R esponding rapidly to ruthless and relentless repetition of
R evelations of  revolutionaries remorseless rapaciousness
O bstreperously obliterating outrageously the innocent
R etributions replicate as ramifications remonstrate
I nsurrection insidiously intensifies as ideologies immortalize
S trategically surreptitiously suffocating silently sons sanity
M ankind muses meticulously as methodologies morph into misery

Thanks Doug, generally I prefer simple words with deep feeling, but sometimes a deeply cerebral write is satisfying. This is one of the few examples of my large word poems, but it just felt write. Thanks for the visit and thumbs up!
