Red Dawn


could this crimson burka twisted o'er 
     the face of morgenland's hag
augur destructions for the peroxide-
     invader (or could it be a hoax?

....

what prophecies shimmer like mirages
     in the mullah's cryptograms 
could they be harmonic lightning 
     (or just a prisoner's final prayer?

....

do these missiles & their vapour 
     trails contain future rain or blood 
& if so will it be brought in bottles 
     (or will these too be extradited? 

....

day-glo nations moonwalk on quick-
     sands of terroristic wilderness 
wear the flag like crosses (on backs 
     along their fake grunge calvary 

....

look here we have three words 
     (i weave a sign 'beware of sharks'
& walk on down the beach into the
     post-romantic dardanelle dark
