Always stand up to cowards

A bad video produced by Christian extremists to blaspheme Islam
Sparks anti-American riots among Muslim extremists with radical Imams

The soft-core porn director doesn't appear to be very pleased with his sudden fame
But some terrorists seized the opportunity to create a lasting Libyan shame

From Sydney to Paris to London, the Muslim outrage spread far and wide
Yet in American, the "peaceful" Muslims condemned the violence and just wanted to hide

Even friendly atheists complained about their thin skin
While their Arab cohorts continued to struggle for the world's attention

Meanwhile the politics of violence and fear seemed to march on
In constant search of a new home

Where freedom (of speech and religion) is dead
And more cowards ("murderers and their accomplices") are bred

So all I can offer is some "modest thoughtfulness" today
And try "to give some human meaning to everyday life" in some way

Always stand up to cowards who incite violence and kill
And to cowards who would take away the freedom to be shrill

Happy (early) Blasphemy Day 2012!
If he who bases his hopes on human nature is a fool, he who gives up in the face of circumstances is a coward.
- Albert Camus, Neither Victims nor Executioners
