If I Were a Terrorist

by Robert Cohen
http://www.notmilk.com

If I were a terrorist
Daidle deedle daidle deedle daidle dum
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum
I'd teach the world that death and pain are dumb.

I wouldn't have to work hard
Daidle deedle daidle deedle daidle dum
If life was a biddy biddy bitch
And I had the terrorist's itch

I'd build a big tall slaughterhouse
With a well lit stage
Right in the middle of my town
With thick glass walls and real wooden floors below

There could be one long ramp just going up
With an endless line of cows and pigs and sheep,
And I'd give the world some pictures so they'd
never get to sleep.

I'd fill my yard with chicks
And turkeys and geese and ducks
For the town to see and hear
squawking just as noisily as they can

And each loud quack and cluck
And gobble and honk
Will land like a trumpet on the ear
As I slashed their arteries
you would hear their sounds of fear.

If I were a terrorist
Daidle deedle daidle deedle daidle dum
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum
This year I'd kill ten billion gentle souls.

I wouldn't have to work hard
Daidle deedle daidle deedle daidle dum
If I was a terroristic threat,
I'd kill your dinner, then I'd kill your pet.

If I were a terrorist
Daidle deedle daidle deedle daidle dum
All day long I'd biddy biddy bum
If I were an evil kind of man

I wouldn't have to work hard
Daidle deedel daidle deedle daidle dum
If I wanted a biddy biddy coat
I'd simply slash a knife in a lamb's throat

If I were a terrorist
Daidle deedle daidle deedle daidle dum
Lord who made the lion and the lamb
Imagine killing piggies to eat spam

If I were a terrorist
Daidle deedle daidle deedle daidle dum
All would know that terror sting of death,
Sip gurgling blood with slaughter's final breath.
