How To Recognise a Terrorist

what is it all about
how do i recognise a terrorist
that’s right,
it is someone in a mask
but…
have you seen the world stage
a procession of people –
talking out of their arse
tell me now,
what is your big game plan
there is blood running like rivers
and i see it on their hands
i am starting to shiver
because all this peace that they talk about
fails to be delivered
what is it all about
how do i know what is safe
when there is obviously mask
even if i can see a face
