INFIDELPHIA – Ode to Ayaan Hirsi Ali

April 6th, 2011

 

Safe from hellfire, free to follow desire

Don’t wanna live my mama’s life

Bade my goodbye to her stiff back

Beat my wings 2 the sky

Scratched out my own education

In a ready-made home on a rubbish heap

Today’s my new birthday

I’m ‘onna fly away free

Words forbidden to express

Sprouted wings & flew from her holy mouth

Into the new wilderness,

“I draw a line in the sand

Set apart from this clan

Here I stand

I am Hirsi Ali Ayaan”

Two lips speak with one tongue

Beggared by invasion

All stitched up

Forever young

But up comes her new form

Barkin right back at the screen

Reminds her how far she’s come

And where she’s been

Words forbidden to express

Sprouted wings & flew from her holy mouth

Into the new wilderness,

“I draw a line in the sand

I am not of this clan

Here I stand

I am Hirsi Ali Ayaan

O Father… is it sacriledge

In my daydreams I borrow from privilege

If you love me, don’t you want me there

With the sun on my skin, the wind in my hair?

Swear I’ll be careful

Gonna unwrap my fear

Walk tall as the stars

To songs of the spheres

Theres a price for the promise

I made in my youth

But as Allah’s my witness:

I will not back down from the truth

Blind faith in her inferiority

Go on I dare ya, open the gate

See how the caged bird retreats

Rattle my cage with the turn of the page

With all the sex & drugs on the street

Nothin to talk about but the will of the soul

And my sisters’ free speech

Secularised or apostate

Well what’s it take to stop the gendercide,”

Say’s Ms Infidel incarnate

“I draw a line in the sand

Step up & over this clan

Here I stand

I am Hirsi Ali Ayaan”

"Why do we excuse a spirituality that mandates abuse?"
