It Is Insulting

It is insulting
that Israel thinks itself subtle.
Insulting that it builds settlements
on fresh rubble. Insulting
that it seizes every chance
to seize land without right.
Insulting that it governs by
the primitive logic of might.
Insulting that it uses scripture
for worldly gain. Insulting
that it prostitutes religion
to push a secular strain.
Insulting that it recalls
ethnic cleansing to justify the same.
Insulting that it calls that
ethnic cleansing by another name.
