For the Enrichment of Jewish Thought

A Poem by Richard E. Sherwin

our kids were sitting ducks for all the rockets
anti tank and anti jew the Russians
and Iranians supplied the bunkered
Hizbullah and their civilian moslems

each the other's camoflage and host
each committing war crimes and proclaiming
innocence of any thought of paying
for the Protocols of Death they boasted

the UN keepers watchers of such peace
recorded nothing seeing hearing nothing
till our shells and missiles touched them some
and then all Israel was judged diseased

and now our wounded kids or dead ignored
and those who grew this carnage still adored
