Doesn’t it sound like some plot by Orhan Pamuk?
Eight years ago, Michigan’s own Hamtramck,
America’s sole majority Muslim city –
Which is, alas, more gritty than pretty (pity),
Yet still a multicultural citadel,
And hence a peachy place in which to dwell –
Elected a city council dominated
By Muslims. And guess who was elated?
The members of the local left, of course,
Who saw the triumph as a tour de force,
A victory for progressives everywhere.
Though faithless, they joined in an ardent prayer
Of gratitude for this manifestly right
Step in the direction of the light.
Eight years later, and – well – things have changed.
The leftist infidels have been estranged
From their old pals who follow the Koran.
For now, in Hamtramck, as in Pakistan,
The powers that be have banned the rainbow flag,
Which they, as one, view as a filthy rag,
Cheering its banishment with a loud and giddy
Howl of – yes, no kidding -“fagless city.”
The former mayor – Polish – feels betrayed.
Was all that brotherhood a masquerade?
Who’d ever have believed Muhammed’s minions
Held such heartless, hideous opinions?
Unthinkable! You’d almost want to cry
That multiculturalism is a lie.
