Why Always Are We The Ones To Blame?


WHY ALWAYS ARE WE THE ONES WHO ARE TO BLAME?

No poem yesterday
Perhaps a poem today
But without the joy of poetry-

A deep inner silence and sadness
A fear.

Why always are we the ones who are to blame?

They hate us so so much.

A bit more than half – a – century after the Shoah
And the one country in the world
Most hated most blamed most treated unjustly most lied about
Most accused of crimes its enemies are guilty of,

Israel only Israel Israel small Israel always struggling Israel.
May God help us survive and be safe.

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:

at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
if I touch
