Fade Away [rev] - Poem by Margaret Alice Second

There is a Jewish debt to Iran and Lebanon rang
Rabbi Nachman's rousing words, and the current
violence and hostility of these nations will erase
this debt shortly: although Israel brought science,
justice, morality and monotheism to the world, it

Owes Persia and Southern Lebanon for incurred
debts from when King Hiram of Tyre, in Lebanon,
helped Israel’s King Solomon in constructing the
first Temple - and Persia’s King Cyrus in spurring
a Jewish nation to rebuild the Jerusalem temple

And he returned the stolen gold and silver vessels
to them: the Jewish debt means it owes Lebanon -
for King Hiram’s generosity & Persia’s King Cyrus -
for his kindness - yet the present belligerence and
hatred shown cancels this debt every day, little by

Little, until it will completely fade away….

[Persia = Iran]
