FANATIC

I am the one shrugging at desire
shaking my fist at the big white hawk
tracing circles in the sky.
I have a will that will not bend.
With my iron staff I smash
the oppressor’s feet of clay.
I have a heart burning for revenge,
a soul hungering for the justice of jihad.

I am the one shrugging at pleasure
shaking my fist at the big white hawk
circling above the minarets.
I am the one who bows to Mecca
and rises up a million
who bows again
and rises up a million more.
I see the world covered with bent figures,
I see a long black beard shaking with rage.
I long to see the chopping of hands,
the beheading of the traitor.
This is the justice for which I burn.

I am the one shrugging at pain
shaking my fist at the big white hawk
tracing circles in the sky.
I am waiting for He who will come again
who will call himself Mohammed
I am waiting for the call to bring an end to all things
befouled by man.
I have a vision that will not relent.
With my iron skull I smash
the oppressor’s feet of clay
until my head explodes.
I have a heart lusting for revenge
a soul burning for the justice of jihad.

For me
god wears a turban
and has a white beard that shakes with rage.
I see a world where all men will bow down
to the truth that is my truth.
