Donal Mahoney- A Poem

The Islamic State and The Third Reich:
A Contrast in Efficiency

As any capitalist knows,
you must spend less 
to make a profit,
which is why I admire those 
running The Islamic State. 
They're efficient
compared with those
who ran The Third Reich.

Who can forget the Nazis,
a terrorist group other nations 
observed for years before 
anyone did anything.
The Nazis gobbled up 
land and people until 
other countries stepped in.
Millions died, most 
of them not Nazis.

The term "terrorist" wasn't used
when the Nazis herded Jews, 
Gypsies and Gays into camps 
and then into gas chambers.
The Nazi way cost money.
The Islamists know better.  

Islamists take no prisoners,
have no concentration camps,
spend no money to gas victims.
Islamists chop off heads 
or shoot infidels in the back
Heads, torsos, bodies bake  
and return to dust in the sun

Once they're finished in Iraq
the Islamists may go to Gaza
and show Hamas how to win
without buying rockets.  

Islamists get the same results
the Nazis did for less money.
They may not be capitalists but
they know how to cut expenses.
