Options... a poem by Anne Selden Annab


Perhaps Palestine
should give up on Israel
and apply instead to be
The 51st American state.

American law could then
meet Israel face to face-
property laws, civil rights, 
real democracy
true equality,
job opportunities
plus a bill of rights
freeing Palestine
(and eventually Israel)
to be of the people
and for the people
and by the people.

We've welcomed in Alaska
and Hawaii
why not Palestine too

Not for oil, or military bases
but for peace and justice
and The Golden Rule
