Terrorist Lit
I am intrigued by this headline, "Bin Laden's No. 2 releases poetry tape Al-Zawahiri recording doesn't mention CIA attempt to kill him".

I think we should have a Give Up blog Poetry competition for titles and poems that sound like they would have been written by a member of al Qaeda.

I'll go first:

I think that I shall never see
a jihad as lovely as a tree.

A tree whose bloody sword is prest
Against the infidel's evil chest;

A tree that looks at Allah all day,
And kneels on barky knees to pray;

A tree that may in summer wear
Plastic explosives in his hair;

Upon whose bosom sand has lain;
And a wish to destroy a train.

Jihads are made by holy warriors like me,
But only Allah can make a tree.

-- Ayman al-Zawahiri

Hold fast to dreams
For if dreams die
Life is a Zionist tool of the Great Satan
That cannot fly.
Hold fast to dreams
For when dreams go
Life is as empty as the decadent, Godless West
Flowing away like the blood of the infidels.

Not bad. Got a Langston Hughes entry.

I'm sure there are many other famous poems that we could exploit, and plenty of famous bad ones that we can mock.

Seriously, there's nothing worse than that damn tree poem.

I think Mark's a little TOO good at writing terrorist poetry. I'm going to put on a dress and blacklist the fuck out of him.
