A Tool Box... for those already involved... a poem by Anne Selden Annab

A Tool Box
for those already involved

If you believe
in Palestine
you might need a tool box
to break away
from those who don't

Take pliers
and carefully unscrew
the nuts attached
to nay saying ninnies
the cynics and the usurpers
the la la landers
going no where-
the religiously confused
and the politically naive.

Take a screw driver
and to tighten solid bolts
turn right- firmly.

Turn left to loosen and dislodge
all the many distractions
attached to negations and nastiness
of one type or another-
toss them gently into a toy box
for tinkering with when bored...
they are not serious state building stuff
but they can be quite entertaining.

Wheels are already round,
no reason to reinvent them.

Keep in mind small cogs move fast,
large ones slow- but with more torque.
