Isis - Poem by James McLain

There is no right side being on the wrong side of fear.
Orange prison jump suits that we make our own wear
treating our own inhumanely
that America would kill if not for the money.
Medusa's head filled with snakes
and the Hydra cut one off and two more that are worse
take it's place.
America's way of thinking is as anathema to them
as is theirs to U.S.
However immoral or unethical each claims that it is.
Cause and effect there is always an oppisite and equal reaction.
The fear of what comes next is always worse than before.
Disillusioned our youth have no hope for the best.
I am in fear of what both side can't say at the cost of some head.
See how easy it was to mistake those two words for another
if mistakenly used for two others.
The rule of law is made worthless in America if it cannot learn
from militants their warning to U.S. and our leaders
While from the militant groups,
the United States air strikes will continue,
when the 'will to continue is that our knives are longer
to attack the people that stand on your neck.
And we can achieve it.
From one administration to the next
it's going to take some time and it's going to take some effort.
After ISIS,
America will deal with the next,
convincing U.S. to give up what's left of our rights.
