The Making of a Terrorist, Big and Small

In Omaha, Nebraska
a man is fired from McDonalds.
In Baghdad, Iraq
a man’s home is bombed to rubble.
What does it take to turn a human brain
into reptilian mode?
Destroy his home and livelihood
or blast his little children to bits and bones.
Fight or flight?
Flight or fight?
When one is hale or hardy enough
expect fight.
When one is old and feeble enough
expect fight from his grown children.
Terrorists, big or small
how everly created
will use what is near at hand
be it stones, Uzi, or home made device
Here comes the fractured brain
goes there for a bigger stick
bigger and bigger
till dropped from the sky.
Terror from the sky OMG!!!
How terrorizing is that???
“Get out of town in 48 hours
here comes shock and awe!”
Fly boys pull their levers
What is the sound of a 500 ton bomb
whizzing thru the air above your head?
It blasts into your neighbor’s house
the terror is knowing it may be yours next.
“An overwhelming feeling of admiration”
Never happened. (Yeah,
we know all about photo ops and movie moguls,
who will give us a Tail wagging a Dog,
for the Almighty Money God.)
When the dividing rod is Fear
war mongers’ dreams materialize
Why so long, oh humankind,,
never understanding
violence begets violence.
If we never evolve
to non violent conflict resolution
we will devolve to the stone age
if any survive…
“Can I have your stuff
after the rapture?”
If one virgin is not enough
70 will be excessive.
