Life as a Terrorist


the things that seemed important
ribboned gifts and designer pants
my credit history of extravagance
and fake passports as a freelance
with several courtesy cards
shopping guns in Baghdad

then I gained influence
enslaved christian clerics in Africa
muslim brotherhood was dense
slaughter people then head to Mecca
the routine of spilling blood
then go repent to God

family never came first
devotion was in the heart
heart of terrorism and hostile radio calls
satellite technology was radical
launching missiles to the US skyscrapers
hijack jetliners and victims calling helpers

human sacrifice was the norm
'bismillah Allah hu akbar' then slice the intestines
or hold hostages and bid ransom
this is the life risked on landmines
embedded by Soviet Union
'conspiracy' the presidents say in unison

poet Christopher Marlowe

Black is the beauty of the brightest day,
The golden belle of heaven's eternal fire,
That danced with glory on the silver waves,
Now wants the fuel that inflamed his beams:
