Durban Iii - Poem by James Bredin

They are planning a Durban III conference in New York next year,
Dictatorships that seem to run the UN and tend to commandeer,
The last one was held in Durban SA, a few days before nine eleven,
When thousands of New Yorkers were suddenly sent to heaven.

The Durban platform of anti-Semitic rhetoric was sad,
Still the same platform next year in NY which shows they’re half mad,
And have turned the UN into their own propaganda machine,
Unfortunately they are real - not some monster at Halloween.

The tenth anniversary of Durban II and 9/11 on the same day,
Dictatorship pronouncements mixed with those who kneel and pray,
All democracies failed to attend the last Durban affair,
Timing next year so that they can’t boycott or walkg away.
