      Poetry Submission: Israeli Politicians


      Israeli Politicians
      by Brandon Marlon

      Sergeants of surrender
      Captains of capitulation
      Admirals of appeasement
      Lead a split nitwit populace to doom
      One bomb and rocket at a time
      On Heaven’s chosen dime

      Lefty antics of self-destructive smut
      Collapse dreams of other brothers
      More in tune with self-love than self-hate
      Enough to make an Israel-lover irate

      At the grossly ignoble state of the State
      That nowadays looks to be a finite experiment

      Jews need a righteous Judge or pious King
      A poetic Prophet and humble High Priest
      Leaders who are clear, bold and decisive
      Un-plagued by modern moral ambiguity

      Unencumbered by self-defeatism and stupidity
      Willing to stand their ground on their ground

      I hope I live to see that very day
      I wish for it privately as others pray
      But no breath will be held for such drastic change
      For such a radical fantasy far out of range

      Elected Israelis are but fools of the hour
      Lacking the longevity of a higher power
