Gift of Life Most Precious

At fourteen you die
Serving the devils incarnate
Pressed by their zeal if not by their ignorance
To kill and maim God's creatures
Preaching murder and carnage
Commanding the young unfortunate
To spill their guts and blood
In the name of WHAT
Hatred, hypocrisy, vengeance
Cloaked under the blood-red mantle of
False piety, false pride, false belief
The corrupted, cankerous kernels
Of fabricated feast in religion
Fed to the young-martyrs-to-be
By the hate-mongering pack of
Mullas, Wahhabis, ignoramuses
Alas, the young ones draped
In shrouds of death
Would never know the wealth of
Well-preserved pearls in Quran
'In the name of Allah, the Beneficent, the Merciful
Praise be to Allah, the Lord of the worlds
The Beneficent, the Merciful
Owner of the Day of Judgment
Thee alone we worship, Thee alone we ask for help
Show us the straight path
The path of those whom Thou hast favored
Not the path of those who earn Thine anger
Nor of those who go astray.' 1:1 Quran
Their precious lives wasted
The gift of life spurned by madmen
Mothers drowned in raging flood of
Grief and mourning
Fresh buds of youth
If not claimed by bigots and zealots
Wondering in shock and disbelief
Why anyone in the name of God
Would teach torturing and slaughtering
Mankind
Shunning the jewels of
Love, peace, harmony
'Ye who believe! Be steadfast witness for Allah in equity, and let not hatred of any people seduce you that ye deal not justly. Deal justly, that is nearer to your duty. Observe your duty to Allah. Lo, Allah is informed of what ye do.' 5:8

Go, figure?
