A Spoken Word Poem: “Defeat ISIS”

“…Now more than ever we Christians must choose
Will we ignite the light from the wick in our lives
And fight for what’s right?
Or let the enemies plight for an everlasting night
Wreak fright through our demise…”

    The message is right the medium is annoying. Poetry is about words that linger. There is no poetry in elusive words that distract ones senses rather than vivifying them.
    Isis is a creation of the West, more precisely Barak Hussein’s. All the honorable generals have been removed and only chumps remain to serve the purpose of the Islamists. The arms that the war criminals are using are all from the west, more precisely Barak’s. There is a lot of money being made by all the golfers who are invested in war.

    I really liked this. It’s art in a new medium. It has a prominent misspelling in it, though. (History is spelled hisotry.) I tried to find it on his website to leave a comment there, but I couldn’t find the poem.
