P is for Paradise

P is for Paradise


———————–The young man dreams of the paradise
———————–His suicide will unlock:
———————–Countless lovely virgins, a ‘willing’ little flock,
———————–Wait for him beside cool, clear crystal streams,
———————–Next foaming sherbert fountains
———————–Set below the mountains.

———————–Ah! Such dreams!
———————–The burqa’d women round the market
———————–Shuffling, furtive creep.

———————–And the bomber’s date with destiny?
———————–‘Assignations’ he must keep …
