Tourists of Terror

How can you separate
the terrorists from the
tourists these days?

Well, skin tone is easy,
but doesn't tell everything
you really need to know.

They could really be with
us despite that swarthy glow.

Oh, who are we kidding?

No black man could stand
    (and no woman sit here)
with us in courage
    (and no woman speak here)
and face down the powers
    (and no woman stands here)
that threaten our freedom.
    (and no woman clothed here)

How can you tell a fat
gawking outsider
from a tactical-geared
courageous lib'rator?
