Guerrilla

They viscously clawed
through bogs, clay, barrows, and fire
to eat the whites from their eyes…

(This is a Katauta, and it stems from a group of Eastern forms of poetry called Waka. The syllable count is 5-7-7. This was originally part of a Choka, but it had so much potential as a stand-alone, I went with a different third line, and decided to give it the spotlight).
