B(arab)bas and the hope he gave
You won't understand, perhaps,
That I don't share their joy:
Only tragedy at a soul condemned
The devil uses his generals,
Until he murders them,
No longer of use.
Obama O$ama Obama.
How they both specialise in terror,
The fox hunt for a human being,
One after another,
In Africa, and Eurasia.
And perhaps B-arab-bas gave some hope.
A voice however evil.
A force. Not scared to stand.
Against the imperials,
The empire of Rome.
And a fuddy duddy old man did die.
He would not surrender till the end.
And then there was a bullet in his head.
The kill was the command.
As in Egypt. As in Pakistan.
Though few but Wikileaks have said.
America. Our Lords. Our Wargods.
She gives us our icons.
Tells us what to think.
Says sin is good,
Good is sin.
And when a donkey brays at them.
Forget all the rest.
Two, and more wars.
War plains. Jets.
To win an election.
O$ama must be found.
Mercy is over.
Next to the Pakistani military training compound.
Sovereignty. What is that..?
And where is our fair trail?
Was it even him?
Or just the devil's speakerphone.
The devil's general was once great.
Or so his soldiers and enemies said.
The devil's general.
He sent Hell more soldiers too.
Yet no strategic threat.
Facts must I repeat?
Of unjust war.
24 on 4. No hurt or casualties.
Killed "after" a firefight.
America. Instilling terror.
So, my love!
But I'm scared,
As I see sacred human blood.
Spilt without so much as pretence.
All life is sacred.
If a Green card it has.
And I wonder.
Spared for a season.
And disposed of quick-ily.
A political statement.
Vengeance. Cold and blood.
B-arab-bas is dead.
Yet long he lives on.
John Paul II Yesterday Beatified.
Yet to them that turn to terror.
Yesterday was born a saint.
His demon soul patrolling oceans.
More useful for something else.
Who is Marc Evan Aupiais?Attorney; Writer; Enthusiast of Germanic, Celtic, & Romance languages, with a love of exploring law, speech, legal systems, linguistics, sociology, & int. news.
I have always been fascinated with the law. By chance, it happens to be my field. I am an admitted attorney of the High Court of South Africa, as of 28 January 2016.
It was my fellow students' suggestions, in the final years of school, that I might be suited to a career in law, along with long discussions with a friend of mine - which imbued me with a keen interest in the history, language, and laws of the Roman Empire - that made me realise that law was the choice of career that best suited the ideas and plans I had for the future. I enrolled in an LLB degree at Wits University and subsequently graduated Bachelor of Laws a few years later.
I completed, with distinction, the Law Society's Legal Education and Development (L.E.A.D) School for Legal Practice program. I am pleased to have had the privilege of having served at two very different firms during my articles, giving me a much broader experience of work in the profession.
I believe success requires not just hard work, but intelligence, perseverance, humility, integrity, ingenuity, diligence, a strong work ethic, and the courage to request the assistance of those better-versed in a matter, or field.
I am passionate about the place of my birth, South Africa and am proud to be a patriot and citizen of this diverse and beautiful nation. I consider myself a global citizen and keep connections in a number of different nations across the world. Communicating with people from other cultures, I believe, has aided me to have a more open-minded approach in so far as how I see and interact with the world.
The cultures and legal systems, morals, and courtesy systems, languages, intricacies and religions of South Africa and of the world, are subjects I love to research. I extensively enjoy reading and writing, and in keeping abreast with important events occurring in other countries, I find my knowledge of other languages, especially French, to be quite useful.
