This is Secret

This is Secret.

 

I found her walking with her hooded ilk around the back streets of Mumbai. Usually when I see a cadre of the enshrouded, they are accompanied by Muslim man that is glaring at almost everyone. This time there seemed to be no alpha around, so I asked her for her name. She looked at me and smiled (I think) and then looked furtively around to see if anyone was watching. I got the distinct impression that since I was a white oddity that actually spoke to her that she wanted to talk, but then thought better of it and made a slight bow before gliding away.

    Of Bin that hid under mounts of Tora Bora a desert to Afghans,
    Of Bin cruelly so damaged peace of Free World unbelievable hideous Crime,
    Of Bin in Crime jointly like coward bid other Lemmings to do his will,
    Of Bin in shame scurried away from battle to nation without Law or rules,
    Of this who now has been this Bin now truly torn apart by sea creatures of deep,
    Of so deserved was an end with joy in Peace seeking Nations celebrated.

    Of no mater how Civility fights threat of bandit Bin and his Mindless morons,
    Of no reason how gracious Diplomatic one says this thug Bin justly rewarded,
    Of no motives how sociable Ambassadors these goody-two-shoes might object,
    Of no need to examine how battles against Dark Islamic Age now so shamed,
    Of this who now from limb to limb shredded in frigid deep by shark teeth,
    Of so deserved was an end with joy in Peace seeking Nations celebrated.

    Of Liberty and the Liberals allowing even annoying WASPS to dominate,
    Of Right to prevail when so much of a joke it had been made by this Bin,
    Of tortures to squeeze the information and of Gatmo to house messed up Holligans,
    Of Jhadists in Explosive Belts on move without cause due to this Bin now gone,
    Of this who now drawn quartered and fed to Nature’s recyclers in Liquid salts,
    Of so deserved was an end with joy in Peace seeking Nations celebrated.

    Of Bin that hid under mounts of Tora Bora a desert to Afghans,
    Of Bin cruelly so damaged peace of Free World unbelievable hideous Crime,
    Of Bin in Crime jointly like coward bid other Lemmings to do his will,
    Of Bin in shame scurried away from battle to nation without Law or rules,
    Of this who now has been this Bin now truly torn apart by sea creatures of deep,
    Of so deserved was an end with joy in Peace seeking Nations celebrated.
