Imprison the Lyrical Terrorist for bad poetry anyway

I do not like poetry, it goes against the teachings of my jesuit english teacher when I was young and callow. The idea that i break the laws of english grammar and ruin it by breaking sentences makes me break out in a cold sweat. So the idea of a terrorist sprouting poetry fills me with deeep angst and worry. Some examples of her work :

  • “The desire within me increases every day to go for martyrdom, the need to go increases second by second.”
  • Malik wrote poems entitled How To Behead and The Living Martyrs
  • "Kafirs (non-believers) your time will come soon, and no one will save you from your doom!"

All this to be taken with a grain of piquant salt!!!
