Worms and Liars

By B. R. Gowani

The Jewish TaNaKh says:
(the Bible too,
the Qur’an somewhat differs)
After creating the universe
In five days;
On the sixth day:
God created Adam and Eve.
And then came the Sabbath.

Or can it be that
God then slid into permanent coma
And hence the screwed up world?

Al Qaeda created/inspired many groups:
Most of them are busy
Blowing up people and things …

But where is Osama?
Resting? Or in a permanent coma?

Frequently since 2001 headlines read:
“US attack kills Taliban in great numbers” or
“Pakistan hands over Al Qaeda members to US”
Subsequently, often it is acknowledged:
Many of these were/are innocent civilians!

Notwithstanding the innocents,
The sheer numbers murdered should account for
Total number of Muslim militants …
Many times over.

So what is the true reality?

The recent bombings in Pakistan show
A proliferation of militants
How is that possible, given so many proclaimed deaths?

Do they multiply before dying,
Or are the US/Pak leaders lying?

Or is it …

New militants are born from the US bombs
and are propagating like vermin?
