Quest of the Dalek

If you were an organism capable only of hate,

then you might too desire to express

this sole passion with the fervor

of a Dalek exterminating all life forms.

 

Take us all to your asylum,

where you have discovered the beauty of hatred,

the ability to love the will to despise.

Open our eyes to your way of life.

 

“Stop! Stop!

If you do not stop,

we will exterminate you!

Stop, so that we may exterminate you!”

 

Is it true?

Is there nothing more than loathing behind

those blue webcam eyes

that despise every creature that fails to match the master race?

They have graced the screens for generations,

and we have never understood their compassion for hatred.

Perhaps their values might be a culture

even great Doctors can’t extrapolate,

even those Whom they wish to exterminate.
