Two glasses and a bottle of wine
Dates, June 30, July 15, cling to their meaning
Do you remember ?
Each division brings suffering:
There is no Lebanon
There is no Syria
There is no Iraq
There is no Israel.
And now, the makers-of-lines,
see their own handiwork.
There is no Great Britain.
Do these dates hold memories for you ?
Two glasses and a bottle of wine.
These sit, waiting your return
A return that may never be.
On that island
in the nest of pine boughs, that protected area
When they make them we suffer for generations.
When you make them
the suffering is continuous.
