The jihadist said: “Hey! Look at me!”
But the mayor said: “We’ve looked but can’t see,
To religion, a link;
And the motive?…… We think
It’s a puzzle – a real mystery.”
But the terrorist said: “You’re a clown!
Are you really the mayor of this town?
Look – I’ve told you that I
For the Prophet would die –
Was for Him that I shot that cop down!
Are you blind, as our army deploys,
And your pathetic freedom destroys?
Tell me, why do you lie
As rings out our war cry?”
And the mayor said: “Did you hear a noise?”
