So You Hate Zionism?

SO YOU HATE ZIONISM

 

Whenever sawdust falls onto the floor it reminds me that

A tree is suffering above the ground.

I don’t care about trees.

 

I don’t care about one-two-three or math.

I was an English major.

I had a Ph.D.

Still do.

 

I hate science.

I hate you.

I hate to hate which is only a word that I don’t understand.

 

What’s the difference?

I hate Hillary Clinton but I understand her saying,

“What’s difference does it make?” about Benghazi.

 

I understand you’re saying that you hate Israel.

I don’t understand that you could say this when you are Jewish.

 

I don’t understand how you could be a liberal supporter

Of the fair share and afford a limousine.

 

I don’t understand how your hating Zionism allows you

To pretend that you still support Jews.

 

Do you think that feeling sympathy for Palestinian terrorists

Will get you seventy-two virgins in heaven even though

You are Jewish?

 

Do you think that self-hatred is a building block towards survival

Or a step towards your own annihilation?
