Palestine Solution. - Poem by Slava Olchevski

There was a war between Arabs and Israelis
The kind of war that could drag for years

The war for power, the war for land
The war about who controls whose government

The war to prove once and for all
To resolve the very long standing brawl

My God came on strong and your God's in defeat
I will force you to wash my dirty feet

Sorry, fella, you got it all wrong
Do you hear a sound of an unmanned drone?

It has laser-guided bombs and clever guns
Its power is stronger than of fifty imams

We have the biggest f*ing guns
And the nukes that leaves survivors no chance

Hold on, before you have made a big mistake
You put your money on technological stake

Killing people is not a solution
And there is a better resolution

So, stop killing each other just for one moment
And listen, for Christ's sake, to my argument

During the Exodus God promised you land
But he did not mention on what continent

Since you were travelling on foot
It did not allow for a long commute

With no cars and no buses you were destined
To settle the land called Palestine

I know, now this place is a mess
The Arabs became citizens of the second class

Look at the United States, it is a great nation
But fifty years ago they had segregation

Black Panthers – Hamaz. Do you see precedent?
Now they have a black president!

I wrote this poem not for money
I just wanted it to be funny

I am not an Arab, neither am I Jew
That gives me right to laugh at both of you

It had been said by Abu Ibn Sin
Laughter is the best medicine!
