Terror Rising

The blood of an evil man,
Spilled upon our world;
A new terror awakens,
His successor soon unfurls

Justice wields its mighty sword,
A mongrel succumbed to fate;
The mighty wings of an eagle,
Left nothing to contemplate

While our nation slumbers,
A serpent sets its course;
Waiting for that moment,
To strike without remorse

Let us slay our prejudices,
Together we'll stand and fight;
Terror stalks our fertile soil,
God bless our land of rights

    It seems those rights are being eroded in the guise of national security.

    Nice job utilizing the animal metaphors to describe the sleeping giant and wily, resourceful antagonist. Nice rhyme scheme! I wrote an epic poem called Osama's Docudrama. If you would like to peruse it, then feel free to do so.
