Unholy Alliance

Michael Peach

Till justice to the Palestinians
Is done
And climate change addressed,
All this jubilant trumpeting
Of a ground-breaking alliance
Between Messianic Israel,
Evangelical America
And Sunni Saudi Arabia
Against far from angelic
Shiite Iran
Should be regarded
As Machiavellian will to power,
Economic opportunism
And yet another step
Towards Armageddon
And the creation
Of Hell on Earth.
