that have pansexual CEOs and Muslim shareholders.
The bombers will be emblazoned with rainbow flags

The desert sand will turn to glass in the blasts,
and that glass will become a ceiling,
and that ceiling will be shattered

or watch their own bodies fall apart like sandcastles,

and whatever miscellaneous extras we can find

arm-in-arm singing “Fight Song” in one voice
beneath a drone-filled sky
to the edge of extinction
where we will leap together
screaming “This is all Susan Sarandon’s fault!”
into the face of the abyss.
It won’t be pretty,
it won’t be wise,
but at least,
for one glorious flash,
we will get to feel like we really tried.
