Jihadi John We Know Who You Are

In a world of DNA and voice recognition you can run and mask but you cannot hide
Especially when the laws of humanity you chose not to abide
Despite showing only his eyes Jihadi John’s identity may have been disclosed
Mohammed Emwazi, a Kuwaiti born Brit who all Western values now opposed
Not yet known if he was present when the Iraqis on the Kuwaiti border came across
And the American led coalition prevented his family’s further personal and property loss
If ever we wanted a poster child of misguided Jihad to capture and not drone
Jihadi John is the one as he has his western roots disowned
Obama’s plan against ISIS has been solely to kill from the air
So our needed human intel cupboard is totally bare
If we cannot get a grip on what causes Europeans to Western values defect
And the sanctity of human life and tolerance for other views reject
Then Harf was partially right; we cannot kill enough Islamists to end this plight
To stop the flow of new martyr recruits anxious to enter into the fight
We know who he is and hopefully with bounties his location we will find
We need the special ops to bring him back and delve into his radicalized mind
