I was just here
by scott from jail

There is something about the Abu Grahib
Crucifixion Form standing
At attention, arms stretched out, hooded,
Like a crown of anonymous thorns
Covering perhaps a young Palestinian boy
Or one of their sympathizers
Streched eagle like a Jesus for our time
Whilst Romans-we
With all the accolades of AIPAC
Jeer, crucify, mock, cajole

There is something about this stark, mute, tortured frame
Which reminds me of going to church
On Sundays
Only without
A resurrection, EASTER!, and the like...

It's been a while since I've been to church,
Not since Hagee and GW moved in,
More popular than God based all on fox news
And the Lovers Of Israel Press Corps

Cheering OUR side
While crucifying children stone throwers

Don't mind me.
I missed the pew by just a few errant degrees
But Nevertheless
I was just here.
