Political Realities ... a poem by Anne Selden Annab

          Political Realities

One state
pillaging Palestine.

One state
to trick the naive
and the vulnerable
into undermining peace

One state
to sabotage negotiations
to free Palestine

One state

One state
to perpetuate
the Israel-Palestine conflict

One state
to give Israeli settlers
free reign over all the land

One state
where some people thrive
but many others don't.
