Where’s Charley
© By Tom Karlson
smashed glass
screams, detonations
16 dead journalists

not Paris
not 2015
this is Yugoslavia 1999
no Muslims
no jihadists
it is NATO
a missile attack
on Serbian TV
where is Charlie

it is July 2011
that Zionist Christian Islamaphobe is working
at nightfall 77 dead
Charlie not here

Honduras, Columbia
40 executed journalists in a generation
no Charlie

January 2015
2 thugs at work
12 dead
jihad is war
jihad is terror
2 million march
here is Charlie

and now
Charlie is gone
no motive no issue
just mad men
to be hunted down
never an attack on god and country
an attack on one weekly magazine

      Thanks, I thought so too. Kind of like a Koan, I thought. 🙂
