the world is aghast
aghast, but time with response
fearful
fearful of men who do great harm
in the name of religion
eh . . .
the same old same old
pure evil has been a part of mankind
since inception
there are plenty of evil
recorded in the Bible
but of course
some of it dictated from
pious mouths
ISIS uses the media expertly
showing men in orange jump suits
handcuffed
in a long line and each prisoner
escorted by a black-suited
TALL guard
each doomed prisoner
has a TALL guard
that is for effect
guard are TALL to give the impression
they are invincible
it seems that the plan
is working
so-called world powers
sit on their hands
close their eyes
do nothing
savagery and terror
has been with us as long as
love and kindness
not much has changed over time
except maybe
the long awaited new Apple
iPhone 20006 whatever
dreadful horror throughout the ages
and nothing has changed
eh, except the iPhone 20006
oh, yes I did forget
something has changed
we are a much more populated world
now
we are hi-tech
the barbarians are hip
and flood the Internet with their message
enticing young women
from good, rich families to
leave for the Middle East to help
evil, brainwashed to the hilt
terror now comes to us
on our iPhone 20006
desk-or-laptop
we can watch people being set on fire
and the all-time favorite
beheadings
young, very young children
barely able to hold a gun
shooting a man who has been
made to kneel for murder
the list goes on and on
young boys and girls
raped, beaten
its all there on the iPhone 20006
watch for the next installment of terror
also you might want to look
out the window
they are coming unless
somebody with the power to do it
stops ISIS and those
of their ilk

Being tall yes makes them scary to some, but I am tall and I tend to think it is all just for effect, just like the hoods, they scare people with them...just like the KKK did in the days when they were the fearsome power that they were...get one of them without backup and you will see how fast they back off and show their own fear...Personally I welcome the chance to do battle with them on our home soil...I am not sure if I am cowardly or not, but I will then find out & cross that bridge when I come to it....bring it on ISIS, you haven't got a hair...!! -e-

It is a very scarey world and seems like back in the bible days at times with all the killings going on and people don't appreciate each other so much anymore, it seems all they think about usually are themselves, which is not the way of the lord. He thought about everyone and still is for everyone.

This is a tough one. Evil exists everywhere and always has. What is the answer? "They" are infiltrating all countries. Sad! Oh, so very sad.

Rakastan sinua.

Wars are the sisters of those that never fall or faced an enemy bent on killing them though they know them not. I pity those that have fought and never die by a bullet but only their memory haunts them and a thousand deaths are wished for but one succeeds.
Reviewed by Lark Pogue 2/26/2015
The thing I don't understand is: they are so tough and proud, but they wear hoods. Why do they want to cover their faces?
