Macrocosm-Microcosm (1)

Michael Peach

While, in Brazil,
Israel’s Revisionist,
Messianic PM
Fervently attends
The inauguration
Of her patriarchal President –
A hell-bent evangelical,
Who, inspired by Trump,
Has vowed to exploit
The Earth’s most essential
Rain Forest
And move his nation’s embassy
To Zion,
Here, despite the protests
Of outraged citizens,
In the name of “fire prevention”
The Jerusalem Municipality
Perversely sears
With infernal herbicide
Large portions
Of the rain-blessed, vernal
Valley of the Cross,
Impairing thus
Her precious wildlife
And natural resurrection.
