I'm looking for terrorists
In jeans, clean-shaven,
But with a bulging mid-riff.
Will he have a back-pack,
Carry a brown paper lunch
With a portmanteau.
I just gave the valet my keys,
And I didn't check his shoes
And certainly not his under-armour.
I live ten thousand miles away,
Just down the street;
So why hurt me.
We cheer for the Bo-Sox
Side by side,
He's familiar to my eyes.
I believe he was changing my oil
When I saw the sideways glance,
But I can't be sure,
When I don't know
What to look for.

Edit, repost.
You are a thought terrorist.

You are a thought terrorist.
I can't go on a walk
or lay in my own bed
or have a conversation
without you there. You have
hijacked my eyelids and
you linger in my mind
-its maddening! Maybe
with these words
I can cut you from my head
and trap you in paper.
You can not become
my background music or
the rhythm of my soul
-its MINE! Yet still, I think of you.
Why do I do this to myself?
If you are the terrorist I hope
I am not the plane going down.

it takes networks of terrorists
to point out the networks of terrorists.

Thank God our terrorists
wear suits and weaponize propaganda
using cameras, microphones, and satellites.

we might look just as bad
as we make others out to be.

Oh, wait...

We've set a precedent:
Traded Bergdahl for five Terrorists...
The deal is done.

Questions hovering above and below...
How many loyal lives were lost
To bring a lone deserter back?

How many lives will go because
Five terrorists walked free?

Did Bergdahl set up the deal
To set a precedent
To set up a President?
Were the five men picked to trade
By Us or Them?
Who's running the show?
Who's to blame?
And Whom shall we say is calling
The shots, and who can say
How many lives were paid
For one who just deserts?


Response/Reaction to today's news that five apprehended Terrorists were traded for one U.S. soldier who laid down arms and walked away from his comrades into Taliban captivity...only to be exchanged for five Camp Gitmo detainees who have know ties to the killing of American citizens.  Meanwhile, the Veterans Administration isn't done 'splainin' why they aren't taking care of our Veterans' health care needs.... Sigh

I'm terrified, so
There must be a thing as terror!


If there is terror
A terrorist must be causing it!!

No wonder I'm terrified!!
It's them terrorists!!

So lets blow the shit out of everything!
To be sure we get them before they get us!

Anti-terrorist! >>>>> terror?

Let's blow the shit out of them before thru get us!
Just don't be afraid of me
I'm okay
