293–Tradition

Yom Kippur– i enter the tribe
pulled in by nothing more
than a late life marriage
my lover’s daughter in law
amazing how the traditions
demand a doing without
a belief religion clung to
like an old tablecloth
not even temple attendance
yet we must gather here
with the appropriate
food of old persecuting
europe i suppose any
excuse to gather is better
yet there is some duty
here an obligation that
sells short the God of Israel
though he is fairly scary
violent actually not much
about peace and freedom
is it any wonder the Palestinians
are free to be slaughtered a
tradition going back thousands
of years.
