Ode of the Terrorist

they lie still in the blood of the moment -
they are the innocent souls
begging to be avenged

in a quiet home
a little child is sleeping
mother strokes his back
  father plans a plot to kill
  another mother's children

justify the plan
a price for yesterday's wrongs -
everyone's God cries

    WOW< this is awesome stuff, Craig, and so sadly tells the tale. I just can't stand extremists and what they are doing to our world.

    Very disturbing and sad because it is true. I can't understand how the same heart is capable of these two extreams.

    Good one, Craig....I choose to defend against these perps as I intend....without my taxes paying for "gov't" intrusion of my civil rights under the constitution.. .Franklin said "those that would give up liberty for temporary safety, deserve neither liberty or safety" jimbo
