It’s a revolt.
And in the name of God, they are building schools,
Delivering doctors, door to door.
They are conveying the message that people care,
And that no one is forgotten but,
Cameras are not allowed in some places.
People hoist burning American Flags which melt and spit plastic,
Scarring children with big brown eyes and,
Women will not talk about this;
Allah is a man in uniform.
