Epigrams
On Al–Qaida

1

you’re dozing
you don’t feel a sharp pain
the mosquito is fed and gone

you’re dozing
you feel a sharp pain
you wake
the mosquito flies away
you build a dyke
drain the swamp
all mosquitoes die

a yappy dog
finds the pack of sleeping lions
creeps to the biggest
bites the nose

all the lions will cower
the yappy dog believed

3

al–qaida
islam’s traitor

4

sixty years ago
the enemy destroyed our cities

we destroyed theirs
and them

thirty years ago
an enemy wrecked so many human souls

now its only home
a lab

5

i think
it’s more because
the fools are noisy

waking the baby
