I wake up every morning, here,
And go eat breakfast to the sound of
The morning news:
"Celebrity did this,
Killer did that,
Football player caught with drugs,
Rapper accused of minor crimes!"
The normal, familiar news for
A US citizen,
Rarely interrupted by disaster.
I wake up every morning, here,
And eat breakfast to the sound of
The morning news:
"Terrorist did this,
Veteran did that,
Five families killed by suicide bomber,
Iran threatens use of atomic bomb against Israel!"
You know –
The normal, familiar news for
An Israeli citizen,
Rarely free of disasters,
Always full of death, hate, and
Ignorant, hateful people on both sides of the
Well-guarded frontier line,
All victims of their
Hate, their ancestors, and their
Blind patriotism and blind leaders.
