Boom! The bomb goes
Screams all around echoes
Man, woman, boy and girl in pain’s throes
Condemnation from one and all rolls
Who has done this thing?
The question continues to ring
The white will blame the darker skin
Profiling has become king
It’s the Muslims, those terrorists
Such generalisation who can resist?
But if in this path we do persist
We might as well settle all scores with our firsts.
People are terrorists. Terrorists are people
Tribe and tongue may not resemble
but they serve in one temple,
Religion steeped in same principle
Their quest to bedevil
Society with one affliction,
to call attention
to their commission
Of atrocities instigating fear, terror
So when you are asked
How do we terrorists unmask?
In ignorance do not bask
Give your self this one task
Say: People become terrorists
Terrorists are people
