Reflections on Yom Kippur (a poem)

Set us free
From hatred, strife and jealousy.
Our petty lust
And rash desire
Quell the heart's passion fire.

Make us tremble in our seats
Not for your majesty
But for our humility

Write down in your book...
The transgressions made
The dept unpaid
Boss to worker
Wayward son to father
1 percent to 99
Occupier to Occupied

Grant us freedom, justice, mercy (and self-determination)
And let us say.... "Amen."
