UN Bans ISIS Oil Sales Good Start

When it comes to the price of oil, Russia is on our side
The drop in prices is putting Russia on a free fall ride
No wonder the Russians drafted a resolution to ISIS oil sales prevent
Even if Turkey may seek to circumvent
Taking ISIS black market oil off the market will decrease however slightly the supply
Higher oil prices for Russia and cutting off funding will mean fewer arms to buy
Jihadists are flocking to ISIS like piranha to the smell of blood
Thousands of fighters pouring into Syria and Iraq in an increasing flood
But like Lincoln long ago so aptly observed
While the Union he was trying to preserve
“I can make more generals but horses money costs”
Cut back the oil funds and ISIS arms and munitions will be lost
While attacking funding sources and seeking to block the flow of funds
Would be a good time for a cyber war on their social media to have begun
All browsers should any and all references to ISIS block
No Instagrams, no Facebook, no Twitters, ISIS from the world should be in total lock
Media coverage should be of ISIS fighters with hands up in the air heading to prison cages
Or bodies on the ground from air strikes with wounded survivors forced to disengage
This has to be an all out war fought by humanity in the banks, fields, cyberspace, madrassas and mosques
We have to surround them relentlessly night and day like a swarm of really angry wasps
