Disking the rock strewn Objected earth near Bet Shean,
Underneath the Middle Eastern sky Rows of mean earth riven by the blades, We cut away our anger, hate, and pride,
Stopping to drink, not from the liquor of Fanatic corruption but from the Precious water welling up,
Our oasis of Jacob'd sharing, In this Hanukah season Of Christ's mass after
We three sons of Abraham, Muslim, Jew, and Christian, Fight the true battle
Not each other but
To be found worthy

In the midst of all of the lethal violence and intolerance in the world spewing out from politics and religions,
choose the opposite path--the upward one. Today, be a blessing to all peoples including your enemies.
