The Rally Palestinian on the 24th


The 24th, a Saturday, brought skies that were a hazy gray
with mountains nowhere to be seen.


Seeking web development, and some resume enhancement,
to the Pyramid of Knowledge did I go.

The fat furry one

Playing down among the trees, which are now devoid of leaves
a squirrel enlarged his girth a little more.


Emerging from the shelves of tomes, I looked upon the Golden Dome
of the Temple of Temporal Power
And beheld, on sidewalk down below, a line


of protestors for Palestine,
such as I have seen before.

Photo Girl

The shutter button I did press, and within a short time did assess
faces from a time weeks past.

Video Guy

Such as the stern-faced man with camera video in hand
shooting me shooting him.


And in sweater silv’ry-gray, no doubt to match her kaffieh,
the Venezuelan Venus of before.

Man with Fez

Now The Cat in the Hat would be proud to have
a fez like that!


Oh, the signs…


Let he who has an eye to see


Discern falsehood from verity.


There are some who believe, I know


Or on this sidewalk they wouldn’t show

Palestine & USA flags

With flags of Palestine, and USA,

Iran Flag

and Iran, a nation of Islamic way,

Bolivia Flag

and Bolivia, with President Marxista,

Venezuela Flag

and Venezuela; is she Chavista?


Now, as this flag came down the pole
the call to Muslim prayer did roll
Aaah, the coinciding ritual!

Prayer time

Upon the grass did Muslims pray and bow
In their manner so traditional
Before protesting yet some more
with chanting in the leftist style.

“Palestinian Chant 2009-01-24, the movie”

Microphone takedown

Up by the Civil War Memorial a Microphone was set
but no one came to use it
And when I asked no one could tell me
who was even supposed to be there.

going away

And so the protest fizzled
and they wandered all away,
will they be back another day?

Had they been driven off

The Vikings

by Vikings?
