National Policy

 

If only it was known

How many people have been

Killed in its name

Of shart and short

Or short and square

Of air and fable

Of airllight and sable

Of wait and turn

To be oft-spurned

To light one’s eyes

With a filter of mirth

When all about you

Is covered in guilt

Is a mitzvah

Not a gift from

Heaven but from

Life itself.
