Their Faith’s Castaways

Is Erdogan, Xi’s, newfound, henchman
Who ships, Uighurs, giftwrapped in guile
To his, mean master, Satan of Wuhan
For Islam, is a sin, in this, Socialist Isle!

How an, Arab faith, ruffled, a Communist State
Know well, who bear its, holy fear
In ghettos, pay price, pilgrims, apostate
With souls, torn apart, and wombs, shredded bare!

Do the Arabs, pity, do the Ottomans, care
Where’s lost, that, ‘Muslim Brotherhood’
With ¥uans, is their, such profound, sin-affair
“Who are Uighurs? Islam’s Deadwood!”

Faith is, no more, than a conjecture
In the, piety’s equation, of malaise
For whom, Fear is Faith, and, Faith is Fear
Uighurs, Uighurs…,Their Faith’s Castaways!

  • Trouble in the water,
    trouble in te air
    Go all the way to the other side
    of the world, you’ll find trouble there
    Revolution even ain’t no solution
    for trouble.
    Trouble, trouble, trouble
    Nothing but trouble.
    Drought and starvation,
    packaging of the soul
    Persecution, execution,
    governments out of control
    You can see the writing
    on the wall inviting trouble.

    ~ Bob Dylan
