Islamic Guerillas ‘Swinging’ in Our Cities?

Arab Guerillas


If I killed an innocent person I would not be a person.

Our President did not go to the anti-terrorist march in Paris.

He knew that he was complicit.

I love Paris.


When I was young I used to laugh at the pictures

Of the American Revolution where the English marched

To their deaths in formation.


Now I am saddened by the cowardice of terrorists who

Chop off civilians heads helter-skelter.

They have no order in their disorder.

They do not march in line.

Their ideas outstep their emotions.

Like Obama they are lefties.



Because of some private grievance unrelated

To their quizzical heads.


Why did Edmund Hillary climb Everest?

Because it was there.


Why should the western powers kill the terrorists?

Because if they were not there the world would be as beautiful

As a flower picked from a garden of angry weeds.


Are those guerilla fanatics swinging in our cities?

When you don’t know who you are killing you kill a piece

Of yourself.
