Louder Than Words

  At Question Time, amid election fever
somebody mentioned ISIS, about its
attraction for Muslim youth born and reared
in British society, as to why
they would want to leave: nobody answered.
 
‘Don’t know,’ said one non-Muslim on the panel,
chorused by bewilderment in all there
seated; Muslims in the camera scan
easily distinguished had no answer
that would not compromise them to a man.
 
Never suggested, the answer must come
from the defectors, so viewed from both sides,
Muslim and non-Muslim; but that their action
gave it, what in words was silence that rides
the echo chambers of British opinion.
