‘Is It ISIS or ISIL?’ by Robert King The Society June 23, 2015 Culture, News of Note, Poetry 3 Comments Is it ISIS or ISIL? I think it is the latter It really doesn’t matter True, ISIS rhymes with crisis Let’s not lose our heads about this But ISIL rhymes with evil And also with the devil So if reason still prevails The devil’s in the details. Robert King is a retired lawyer and poet living in California.

Isil actually does make more sense, though most call them Isis. Who cares of their name, only have a desire that they burn in Hell.
