A Vision In Twenty Twenty

Where borders are straight
Imagined by kings
Eretz elders dictate
Levant youth take to slings
Too many seduced
Some take the stage
Range now reduced
Some will engage

Many horrors were preached
By cloth left immune
‘Til Aswan was breached
Then Zion’s balloon 
Boundaries burned
Re-invented again
Crusader returned
Purred kosher hymn
