Food for Thought-James Foley RIP

James Foley (RIP)

Beheading is a crime,
which betrays the sky,
it denies the beloved,
the right to die,
in their own time,
and forces them to lie,
among a pool of hate,
the blood of vengeance
mingles with the blood of fate,
here we wait,
for tapes to speak,
and twitters to tweet,
to know what we already seek,
the world is full of those who claim a name,
God, Allah, Yahweh, it’s all the same,
they kill, rape, murder and maim,
like some X-box video game,
about a bloodthirsty deity who gives a damn,
not about people but how many heads you can slam.
