The beheading in Syria in poetic fashion
Perhaps we should wait and see what the President's plans are before criticizing him.
The young American reporter
dressed in red, hands bound behind his back
In a kneeling position
The hooded Isaac terrorist killer
standing by his side
holding a mechete
Soon he will remove the head of the young thirty one year old captive
The gruesome scene is filmed as planned
and displayed on telivision for the whole world to see
Should America remain passive and inactive
or should we stand tall
and become super interactive?
We have a choice
We can look the other way
or we can use military intervention.
I watched President Obama yesterday as the pundits were criticizing him for nonintervention.
I remember well the day his select force killed Osama Bin Laden.
We later learned that he had been diligently working behind the scene.
Perhaps it's time we wait and see.
Instead of passing judgement let's remember the past
and trod softly
We might receive a belated surprise.
