EIGHTEEN CONFESSIONS WITH PRAYER BEADS by Bedros Afeyan You might as well be Lebanese If you set your clock to a war Bombed bosom of thine brother's barrage Fastidious religious banners, lust, lore. Poised in prayer on the head of a silvery pin Exploding sperm banks evict the middle road As Eastern quest to questions ring Channeling Western coffers Abducted news and queues: Kill, kill, kill and be killed in between. Governments come and go speaking of ethnic effects of domino Syria serenades trucks headed South unchecked Iran inflates poison pamphlets, promising in death Israel ingests the bait, inviting itself to oblivion No longer invincible, no longer inviolate. And Theocons in full missionary mosaic Scratching themselves in mid coitus Infiltrate the mind set of the evil enemy To deflagrate infidel egos with abandon As Halliburtons reach mandatory corporate climax Reconstruction Hosannas on their sanguine tongues. 10-13+14-06 San Francisco & Pleasanton, CA -- Dr. Bedros Afeyan is a theoretical physicist who works and lives in the Bay area with his wife, Marine.
