Poems Are Made For Beautiful Things - Poem by Shalom Freedman
POEMS ARE MADE FOR BEAUTIFUL THINGS
(Written for the Ilui Neshamah of Rabbi Gabriel and Rivka Holtzberg who were murdered in the Chabad House in Mumbai November 2008)
Poems are made for beautiful things-
Not for murder and for terror -
Not for cruel sudden deaths-
Not for hatred which kills without question-
And justifies itself,
By some absolute inhumane ideal.
Poems are made for life
We Jews want to live,
And they the Suicide- bomber- people,
to Murder their way to Eternity.
