#113 IMAGINE...

Musings #113

9th of Nissan

A Very Special Musing

Imagine--Not Like John Lennon, at all!
I don’t want to be sued by Yoko Ono

Imagine if everyone says no
It's easy if you try
No hell of disengagement
No reason to reason to kiss our homes goodbye

Imagine all the people
Refusing government orders...
Imagine if during World War II

the Germans would have refused
What the Nazis had ordered them to do
Hitler would have been jailed
And the Six Million would have lived
and realized that their home was here...

You may say I'm a dreamer
But Herzl and the chalutzim* were, too
I hope you'll really join us
And make this dream come true

Imagine no terror

It’s easier than you think
Just refuse to participate
In the destruction of our state
Better to be jailed
Than just hoping...

Imagine if all the teachers
and civil servants, too
workers of all sorts
were jailed by Tzippi Livne
for saying what we thought

Who would teach the children?
Who would sort the mail?
Who would drive her to her meetings?
Who would cut Sharon’s hair?

Imagine if more people
Would say what they think
We could rescue our nation
There would be no disengagement

You may say I'm a dreamer
But it’s all up to me and you
Because together we have the power
To make this dream come true

*chalutzim were the early Zionist pioneers who established the kibbutzim and Jewish communities
