There is a dark drama

A building of pressure

A sense of impending change

A feeling of molten human eruption

A trembling of the ground under all of our feet


All thru time

Now thousands of years

When countries begin to disintegrate

Jews are the Canaries in the mines

The first to smell the poisoning air


People like me

Jews who wear Stars of David

Around their necks

Who know how few in Europe

Faced up to tyranny for us

The Gypsies

The Crippled


Artists and Writers


Who know that the 2% of us

Whose families made it here

To America

Before and after Hitler

Are not enough to stop

A tidal wave of insane hate


The chill inside of us that screams:

“Oh God, not here…too!”

Jews must resist

Black people must resist

Latinos must resist

Gays must resist


All of us

The sane people

Not separately

But Together



We are but a whisper


We’re an unstoppable roar


Time to face the Evil

Be Ready

Be Brave

Be Americans.




(Inspired by my ranting letter to a brilliant poet and also my friend, Charlie Newman)

“Separately We are but a whisper. Together We’re an unstoppable roar.” Whites have been duped, brainwashed to think color matters. We’re being used by those who would control our species. Separately, humans are weak. United, there’s nothing we can’t do. World hunger? Easy. Disease? Piece a cake. But then, no one could use those specters to herd us. “Oh God, not here…too!” Yes, here. If whites don’t look behind the curtain.

Thank you, Bob. Another beautiful, wise and heartfelt poem. I have forwarded it to Daniel Biss, who I hope will be Illinois’ next Governor.
