Live Video Feeding

The camcorder tolls
time on the firing line.
Rifle-butts twitch, soldiers
squint down oiled targets,
for non-fiction's sake.
While the cameraman wires
contentment to his regime
by live video feed, as blindfolds
are removed from the dead of hearing;
their deafness tooled to warm conquerors
before a satisfied studio audience.
