With our Blue Planet under attack by idiot zealots, sneaky plotters who claim that their cause is justified by their religious belief, be-robed and bearded spiritual leaders who insist on teaching their offspring that they will one day strap on a suicide vest and kill and maim in the name of what, we the guardians of this O so special chunk of rock, water and ice must show solidarity, use every means at our disposal to prevent such attacks and at the same time attempt to intervene in the indoctrination process of these kids, who are otherwise going nowhere except to the fringes of our universe, forever troubled by the cosmic dust, the screams of their victims, and that of their own!
Many more lives were taken, and hundreds maimed in Kabul the other day when another sneak attack was detonated causing immense damage in the diplomatic district. How they manage to amass such devastating material, and get their explosive filled suitcases, trucks and smelly armpits through security cordons, just amazes and makes one realise how readily available such ingredients must be and that our work is cut out, to root out the evil thought, and must transcend more than just simple prayer!
Unbelievable you will say when you learn that the country with the highest conversion rate of Muslims to Christians is none other than Iran! And the kids who have been told that will one day strap on that killer vest, are converting to Christianity and then after being told they will be killed if they do so, they simply answer “With your vest on we were dead anyway!”
A Coptic Christian Priest, Zakaria Bostros has become the most hated man in the Middle East as he, through his own television channel, Alfady TV, has been spreading The Word and causing headaches amongst those who would keep peoples and Nations in the Dark Ages. Satellite and the internet have helped immensely in the broadcasts reaching hungry ears and eyes because, as you can imagine, the channels that be in the Middle East refuse to air such blasphemous trite.
Having said that, after the latest sneaky rat attack in Manchester, with so many dead and scores maimed, the following is my word of condolence, a beratement aimed at the underhanded perpertrators and a message of solidarity to our brothers and sisters left devastated by such pointless acts!
Only Their Loved Ones
Hell bent on your own glorification
In that moment of evil devastation
You took away their future success
The obstacles they would yet transgress
Families and offspring became a dream
By the planning of your senseless team
As you stirred your nails into that explosive mix
To sneak, like rats, and destroy with a practiced click
O how your ideology smells like ancient mummifications
How with your putrid thoughts, you would topple nations
Against the keepers of our glorious Earth, you have no chance
For it is we, who will take your nails, and drive them back, in our victory dance
Yes, only their loved ones will know what you took away
Carefree walks along a leafy way
The teachers, technicians, fathers and mothers alike
Aspiring sportsmen and women, and the goals they might strike
Their achievements and discoveries that would’ve astound’
Their thoughts, writings and hypotheses, so profound
‘Tween their tears, and their longing for a chat or a touch
Only their loved ones have that picture, that they treasure so much
