    Default The Fighting Taliban

    I'm not sure if any of you remember the Last Poets, led by Imam Sulayman al-Hadi, who was also one of the founding members of the Dar'l-Islam movement in the US. Well, they produced a moving poem back in the day called 'Ho Chi Minh' which described the defeat of the US by the Viet Cong liberating forces. I composed the following poem called the 'Fighting Taliban', based upon their poem and using the same beat. Like their poem, this one describes the victory which the Taliban freedom fighters are enjoying over the US and NATO forces in Afghanistan.

    THE FIGHTING TALIBAN
    Oh I just could not stand
    Against the fighting Taliban
    Oh I just could not stand
    Against the fighting Taliban
    He stood & looked upon the earth
    with drones & weapons in his hand
    His satellites set their sights
    upon an ancient rich Muslim land
    Worshipping God, the One Alone
    and their flocks and herds to tend
    Yet ready at a moments call
    their Muslim homeland to defend
    He walked into their Muslim land
    Surreptitiously as an uninvited guest
    He said: "I'm here to rid you of
    your militants and terrorist pests!"
    He said: "I'll build an army base
    Right here on your masaajid floors!
    And I'll protect you from your sons
    and from the Pakis and Chinese next door!"
    The Taliban answered with a snap:
    "We need no help from the likes of you!
    Why, you are the same kaafirs
    that Allah ta`ala helped us defeat in 1842!
    Our sons are in the surrounding mountains
    their sacred Muslim homeland to regain
    So why donít you just go back home
    and save yourself some grievance and pain"
    Oh I just could not stand
    Against the fighting Taliban
    Oh I just could not stand
    Against the fighting Taliban
    He said: "Hajji! Are you insane?!
    Do you know who the hell I am?!
    Why, I'm the policeman of the world
    And everybody calls me: Uncle Sam!"
    The Taliban simply took their weapons
    and with a real righteous defiant stance
    They said: "Yes, we know you & what you'll do
    but you see, we donít give a damn!"
    He said: "Where did these ignorant Taliban
    get the gall and unmitigated audacity
    To take small weapons in their hands
    and defiantly speak like that to me?!
    I'll send my smart helicopters
    mercenaries and unmanned drones out
    On search and destroy missions
    to hunt these backward peasants down
    I'll send my computer integrated jets and tanks
    to burn his masaajid and villages to the grown!"
    The Taliban looked at this arrogant fool
    and with dignity did not even bat and eye
    They said: "You see before we would submit
    we all would rather turn to Allah, fight and die
    But we feel it only right and fair
    that we should warn you crusaders for yo sake
    That this here war will be the biggest blunder
    that you christians, athiests & zionist will ever make!"
    Oh I just could not stand
    Against the fighting Taliban
    Oh I just could not stand
    Against the fighting Taliban
    The big bully, now blushing red
    let out a whooping marine battle cry!
    The Taliban, then just seemed to fade away
    into the surrounding mountains and countryside.
    He smiled and said with over confidence:
    "I've got those mujahideen on the run!"
    But then booby traps, AKs, bismillahs & SVDs
    along with stingers & IEDs set fire to his buns!
    The Taliban fought so hard and well
    that so the untold story goes
    They trapped themselves a 'paper tiger'
    and filled his western hide with holes!
    And as the pain, & the economic strain intensified
    he cried out to the world loud and clear:
    "Heah, if I can just get untangled yall
    I'm gettin my heroine addicted butt up out of here!
    Oh I just could not stand
    Against the fighting Taliban
    I gotta go!
    Oh I just could not stand
    Against the fighting Taliban
    Gimme my drugs...my burgers...my money...
    but I'm leaving my guns...I gotta split...I gotta leave
    Where's my boat?! Where's my plane?! ...I gotta split!...I gotta leave
    You see...I just could not stand
    Against the fighting Taliban
    NoI just could not stand
    Against the fighting Taliban"

    Actually the credit goes to Imam Sulayman al-Hadi, may the mercy of Allah be with him, who composed the poem Ho Chi Minh, upon which I based this poem. His poem can be found on the Last Poet's album called 'Delights of the Garden'. I simply saw the parallels between what happened in Vietnam and what is going on in Afghanistan. The poem 'Ho Chi Minh' captured in a way few people have of the reality of the humiliation which the US suffered with their defeat and which they have been trying their best to undo, to no avail.
