Let Israel be Pope for a while

and consider the children safer

the currencies stable

the Germans’ account able

to reanimate Spanish romance

the craic and the fable

 

Consider the Bear and East Asia

and the scenes of deep conflagratia

and let the two pebbles

resolve their ripples

as rebels in

Jerusalem

 

Remember the time and the place

and look to an outer space

where places in time

are measured for rhyme

and rhythm

is running the joint
