A Single, Solitary Rose of Sharon

Three thousand years of fighting
over land rights with their god

on their side – the land flowing
with milk and honey, no, the

land flowing with the blood of
men, women, children, destruct-

ion to livestock, to crops —
a heel continually crushing a

single, solitary Rose of Sharon
that cries in the desert from

a kingdom — not of this world.
