LIBERTÉ EGALITÉ FRATERNITÉ (C’est pour vous?)

Merkel helps to light the fire in

Paris,

and tries to put it out in

Berlin.

Mahmoud Abbas isn’t

embarrassed

to be with Netanyahu

though it could be his

banana skin.

They who murdered journalists

and imprisoned them

were there,

they who destroyed Libya and Iraq

were there

in the media glare

as democracy at work,

they who killed millions

were there,

though their visit to Paris was

a quirk

they met up with Hell’s Angels USA

to ride pillion.

 

Wilson John Haire. 15th January, 2015
