HARVARD SQUARE COMMENTARY

A Poem

Crusaders, Syria, 1099

John R. Guthrie


"This crusade, this war on terrorism
is going to take a while."
--George W. Bush



The soldiers of our fairest Lord
sacked Barra first, then Marra.
Famished from their holy work
they grilled the children whole,
the grown-ups sectioned.
Then they ate them.


Praise be the warriors of the Lord,
of Jesus meek and pure,
they who consumed the Muslim hoards
for Jesus of the sharp broadsword.
