Get Rid Of The Advertisements

...Breaking News...

If ignorance is bliss,
as they are wont to say,
then a head buried in
the sand is a safer place.

The nightly news just
gets worse, day by day,
images of terrorism,
quite impossible to erase.

Radicalization, runs
rampant and unchecked
within cells of jihadists
who adopt the rhetoric.

Unlike shock and
awe they seek to interject
lies, aimed at each
perceived infidel and heretic.

Be it ISIS or Al Queda
propaganda on airwaves
designated for those
disenfranchised worldwide.

It's meant to put
Christians and Jews in graves,
unseen faces and hearts
fall to ideological genocide.

That head buried in
the sand will protect you not,
reality will not go away
just because you wish it so.

With vigilant belief
these zealots may be caught
before there is a
reprise of Paris or San Bernadino.
