Glowing In The Dark

It is revealed that al Qaeda is recruiting lonely young men and boys who spend their time playing computer games for suicide bombing missions, promising everlasting life, and presumably everlasting computer games. But the United States has drones, unmanned aerial vehicles, UAVs, that can detect suicide bombers at long range by infrared imaging that examines the heat radiated by the body to detect if explosives are being carried.


He sits there in his basement room

Doors closed, no sound, lights low

A ghostly figure in the gloom

Lit by computer glow

The figures on the screen are real

As real as life to him

The wounds he causes make him feel

That his life is less grim

The Imam smiles and becks him come

Join now the holy cause

March proudly with the jihad drum

Just put your game on pause

And join us in far Pakistan

A Holy Warrior be

Come join us son and be a man

And set the Ummah free

He closes down the infi Dell

And climbs the basement stairs

His life for Allah he will sell

Success to he who dares

In Pakistan he’s fitted for

A somewhat bulky vest

And told that he’s now in the war

And Allah needs his best

He smiles and shakes the Imam’s hand

He’s filled with jihad pride

lesAnd there in that wild far off land

Is where our warrior died

For unseen forces lay in wait

Not like his basement room

A UAV had sensed his fate

For some games end in doom
