For Sheikh bin Mahfouz

Terror is a riddle,
An enigma inside a puzzle;
Who seeks to solve it,
You seek to muzzle.

Your men are on the board,
And to the game I come late;
But I will see you the twin towers,
And raise you your caliphate.

You slink in the darkness,
And are wary of the light,
But the mystery of your terror
Is hidden in plain sight.

You are now on my radar,
In fact, in the top ten;
But others are above you:
Do you know who and since when?

Bin Laden had helpers;
Millions were their reasons.
They say it's business,
But I say it's treason.

Aces and Eights
