Special Offer

by Chris Norris

The State of Israel, strange as this may seem,
Has offered us Iranian folk its aid
In getting shot of our ‘hated regime’
By means of yet another bombing raid.

Rather as if, in Nineteen Thirty-Nine,
The Germans told the Czechs: ‘give us the wink,
Ask nicely, then we’ll cross your border-line
And fix up your regime-change in a blink’.

Rabbis for Mullahs, different sort of god,
Maybe another bout of genocide,
But please, just give our IDF the nod
And see if its famed goodwill’s bona fide.
