What Sort of Men
What sort of men slay children bent at prayer?
Does God, ‘Compassionate’, and ‘Merciful’
indeed command? Or is the devil’s lair
now empty, and the Sinai now full
of Satan’s Helpers, glad to lend a hand
defaming all that’s holy – spraying lead?
Instead of calls to prayer throughout this land,
the shrieks of women weeping for their dead.
If you believe in God, perhaps your fight
begins inside, against the infidel
that feeds on hatred, twisting what is right,
and quotes God’s words while dragging you to hell?
Don’t preach to me of what you think this gains,
I’m busy weeping for the newly slain.

Yes I have a day job
Did I mention that I was a Foole?
