A Meaningful Coincidence

Michael Peach

The timing of Israel’s
Intended conquest of the Moon
Was of course deliberate.
The arrival of “Genesis”
Was supposed to coincide
With “Meshiach ben-Yamin’s”
Expected victory at the polls.
But the fact that it crashed
And disintegrated,
Just after a black hole
In deep space
Was for the first time
To me, at least,
Is meaningful.
