Omar Mateen’s Terror Sonnet

Islamic terrorism was Mateen’s

Very last act of closeting himself

This ultra-macho identity seems

Best able to keep his “gay” on the shelf

The regressive revolutionary 

Religious camouflage obscures his doubts

Reducing his life to a binary

Narrative that ev’ry religion touts

ISIL, Al Qaeda & Hamas all

Fight for cockamamie ideas of pasts:

They the harmonious modern forestall 

To try to regain their powers that lapsed

The dreary nostalgia for religion

Is the zealot’s favorite clay pigeon 

Alleged Lover Of Omar Mateen Claims Orlando Shooting Was “Revenge” For Being Exposed To HIV
