The Terrible Angel

They kill innocents
in the markets and cafes of Paris
and Baghdad.
Poison pollutes their minds.
They subsist on the blood
and bones of their own kind.

They rape women and children
and cut off
the heads of men.
Moses stood before a mountain
and crumbled beneath the blazing radiance of God.
He praised the light.

They worship the darkness.
The prophets warned us about them.
Their angels have all fallen.
They wear black masks
and wave black flags.
They are possessed.
