Is “Allahu Akbar”, left, at last
With widows’ wails, Satan’s shibboleth
And a, dying azan, that gapes, aghast
At the faith, that resents, its every breath!
“How could, sin be, a sacred crusade
To kill kafirs, by the codes, of Quran
Who’re led, by fear, in faith’s masquerade” –
Alas! Enigma of, a fanatic clan!
There’s more, to it; their ‘cherished sins’
A devoutness, that, defeats, its cause
For the bait, of a six, dozen virgins
In the heaven, reigned by, Quranic laws!
Why smell, of rubble, seethes the soul
When blood, mingles in, dread and dust
A faith, heralds, hate’s hyperbole
In the, name of, ‘Martyrdom August’!
If jihad, only bonds, Muslim Brotherhood
From US ambush, to bloodbath, of Baghdad
Would the world, daresay, what it understood
Is Islam’s Jihad, A Faith’s Fear’s Façade!
