Numbers: Badawi to His Torturers

Raif Badawi

They go from strength to strength, every one of them in Zion appeareth before God. – Psalm 84:7

Cracking and shattering,
Shoulders and ribcages
Stronger than oak under
Cane after cane:

“Pain is the weaponry
Favored by weaklings and
Strength is a virtue to which
You have no claim.”

Numbers is a weekly news commentary column in poetical form by Curt Hopkins. “Numbers” is an historic term for poetry, and also alludes to the numbers in programming.
