Refugees in the land of milk and honey: The cries of a helpless old woman distressed
Rang out in the Tel Aviv streets one night,
Her frame was weak and her body could never
Defend her from any who was out for a fight,
Her griefs were inflicted by well armed policemen
Bull-headed, void of honour for the hoary head,
A black man pushed away trying to help his mother
Go on your way, the oppressor they said,
In the park on the way to the central station
Lies fast asleep, great multitudes of men,
Roof-huts, benches and grass become beds
And in some spaces there sleeps about ten,
No freedom for refugees yet you take...

HE WAS NEVER LATE FOR APPOINTMENTS
ALWAYS THREE HOURS OR SO AHEAD,
IF HIS PLANE WAS LEAVING AT MIDDAY
FOUR IN THE MORNING HE’D BE OUT OF BED,
I REMEMBERED ON VERY FROSTY MORNINGS
HIM OUTSIDE SCRAPING HIS WINDSCREEN,
THEN HE’D BOIL UP THE KETTLE WITH WATER
FILL THE RADIATOR AND GIVE THE WINDOWS A CLEAN,
HE WAS A VERY DEDICATED WORKER
WHO SMOKED CIGARETTES AND OFTEN SAID,
“BOY, YOU MUST SAVE YOUR MONEY
AND PUT DOWN SOMETHING
FOR BURYING WHEN YOU DEAD”
HE WAS ALWAYS VER...
