The Root

I entered into the abyss, of the things
I had for so long dismissed,
I wasn’t prepared,
I could see things going on all around,
They went undeterred.
I wanted answers for what was advancing,
Eating away like a cancer,
When I asked, there was so much anger,
Threats and slander.
The media had no answers,
Nor the government –
They said,

This is not what Islam represents.

The peacefuls threatened,
There was a silence from the authorities,
It was obvious it was them,
They were protecting.
My only option left,
Was to go back to their texts,
Go back to the source,
The Qur’an,
And the authentic reports.

    Here you go:

    A wily politician called May
    Was overheard one day to say
    “I’ll whitewash sharia
    If it helps my career.
    Your grandkids will just have to pay”.

      Do you make memes, would you consider making this into one, if not, would you mind if I do?
      BTW are you on fb? I can’t see your blog, but I will follow you there if you are.
      My fb is at the bottom.
