ISIS and “Turning the Other Cheek”



So you have entered the exit to nonesuch in the land of foreign.

I am a legionnaire.


I would like to fight Muslims.

They place innocence in a jar and light our sandals.


Christ believed in turning the other cheek.

I don’t.


But I respect it more than ISIS putting a Jordanian pilot

In a cage and lighting him on fire.


That Obama could not fight might with might

Shows that he has cowardice beneath his face.


If you don’t fight for your women,

They get raped in the sand dunes.


Obama has poured our country into a pail,

Taken a dump


And poured it on the head of our history.

Emerson, Jefferson and Washington smell the stink of failed

Self-reliance in the past.
