Forwards ...a poem

Time, energy and ignorance
daily fortify Da-esh bigotry:

An obscure cartoon
becomes headlines

becomes protest rallies

becomes a reason
to be unreasonable.

Craving attention,
the rage meisters

pounce on favored themes
like a kitten with yarn

See my status- feel feel feel
my emotion- follow me...

My heroic quest to be more
with my passionate stance

My ache to be righteous
on borrowed sorrow

My right to make refugees
with war never ending
