No Reason to Be Alarmed

No Reason to Be Alarmed


Please cease to be alarmed, you hapless Brits.
Please cease to panic. Please make inner peace
A top priority. Let all fear cease–
And come together in the standard fits
Of, well, togetherness. Pop music hits
Will pull you through. It’s absolute caprice,
We’ve heard from wise philosophers in Greece,
To take your stance and put up both your mitts.
Jihadis too, you know, do what they do
In search of peace, or something very near it.
They preach the word of righteousness to you–
And, in politeness, you should stop to hear it.
Don’t fret at the decapitation crew.
Remember: Kathy Griffin’s there in spirit.
