The Cowardliest Of The Cowardly
Those who take hostages and behead them are the cowardliest of men
by Francis Duggan
For their cause in this way sympathy they cannot hope to win
For themselves they sow the worst of foredoom if for their heinous crimes they do not pay
Then the bad karma they've sown for themselves will catch up with them one day.
They always wear balaclavas when they appear with their hostages on t v
For to hide from the World their facial identity
They lack in a sense of self worth and they lack in hope and faith
For to commit such crimes against humanity they must be consumed with hate.
I pity their unfortunate hostages who are innocent of any crime
Their hard luck to be in the wrong place and there at the wrong time
For days they agonize and they worry as to what might be their fate
Of the good condemned to suffer we hear so much of late.
They are the cowardliest of the cowardly of them is all that can be said
And their bodies only living the souls in them are dead
And though the evil in them was created by a war
They have taken fundimentalism that one step too far.
The cowardliest and the most callous of people just those and nothing more
But one day karma will catch up with them for to level up the score
Those who take life so cheaply cannot expect any sympathy
Since they commit the most heinous of crimes against humanity.
