The Deadly Mihrab

The human belt is set to go
an incredibly difficult business
volunteers fused and mindfully set

The smartest of bombs can not
pretend to be a pregnant woman
without an escape plan

Spreading around the world

This weapon with but one message
“No One Is Safe–Anywhere”
in the here and then again

Forbidden by the Prophet
the bottom line is not entirely clear
for those bent on starting out in Paradise

As Paradise seems to exists
only for those with a day or two’s notice
on where to detonate themselves
