ISNA Canada Presents the Poetic Stylings of Supremacist/Anti-Establishment Rapper Boonaa Mohammed

If, like me, you aren't about to attend this year's ISNA Canada convention, here's some of what we may miss--the spoken poetics of a dude who's really popular with the young'uns. This is from his work entitled "War on Error" (get it?):
...Isn't it strange how the strangers are starting to feel strange?
I guess sometimes Guantanamo bay is just the price you gotta pay,
Allah does not place a burden on a soul more than it can handle
And the bruises from sujood will light your way just like a candle
And we follow the example of the best of examples
I don't stand for flags and or bow to your bourgeois
I pledge allegiance to La elhalla il allah
Say it now, Say it loud, be proud of your Muslim names
Uthman, Umar, Ali, Khadija, Aisha, Summayah
If only you knew the sacrifice these people made
So tell airport security, I'm sorry if we all look the same
But there's a reason why Muhammed is the world's most popular name
And you can call us funny names, and draw cartoons in his name...
So sorry, Boonaa. Our bad.

In case you were wondering, "the bruises from sujood" (prostration during prayer) can look like this.
