We were all tired of the details of the war
and when we were frustrated enough
the Maharal of Prague appeared
on the Golem of television
the creature of our creation —
He appeared on TV one night.
Out of the tube he began
speaking like the holy man he is —
We are all sacrificing our children
our failure to understand our differences
he said in twenty four inches
– we declare war on what is different between us
because we fail to grasp
the purpose of our differences.
I need you to be me
You need me to be you.
