The Clumsy Bomb Maker
By Mark Edgemon

Online instructions for a new recruit terrorist man,
Desiring to see Allah many days earlier than scheduled.
Simple bomb making, easy as one, two, three;
He will be rewarded in paradise beyond,
Cause no one who sent him gives a damn.
Fools come in many shapes and colors
And are easy to find; praise will summon them out
From the cracks and crevasses; pouring forth like insects;
Stumbling; bumbling; giddy with ecstasy; agreeably delighted;
Happy to oblige; Wanting to be apart of something greater.
Greater than themselves? How hard is that? Not very.
Step number one to easy bomb making...find a bomb; done that!
Step number two...set the timer carefully and correctly; done that too!
Step number three...BOOOOOM! Dumb ass blew himself up!
Hello Allah, I'm a big fat screw up. Open the gates wide.
Where's the buffet; bring on the dancing girls; Huh? Hell?
Cause I was bad; hurt people; selfish and stupid. Who knew?
