      Poetry Submission: Fed Up! Words from a Danish-American

      Fed Up!
      by J.P.Christiansen

      We love the Jewish people!
      Get it,
      vapid public commentators,
      and various members of 'think-tanks',
      high on yourselves from intellectualization
      and abstraction on theory,
      and not physical involvement,
      for the survival of the state of Israel,
      ready as you are to condemn an out-post of freedom,
      surrounded by religious insanity.

      We love the Jewish people!
      Get it,
      European and US political cowards,
      denying from your deep, comfortable couches,
      or safe, protected, tax-payer offices,
      the right of Israel to defend itself
      against surrounding Muslim enemies
      wishing only a second Holocaust for Israel.

      We love the Jewish people!
      Get it, Muslims?

      You have a long way to go,
      and a lot of religious insanity to make up for,
      before you’ve earned the right to claim membership
      in our global community of hard-won democracies;
      in fact, you have about 1400 years to go,
      so stop acting-out like children denied toys,
      and get your Allah-crazed act together!

      The civilized world is just about fed up
      with your juvenile antics and temper-tantrums,
      so grow the hell up,
      and in the mean-time,
      get back on your ADHD medication!
