Wafa Idris blew herself up
Along with an old Israeli man
In a street in Jerusalem
Perhaps because she was hit by a rubber bullet
When she was attending a wounded man in the refugee camp
Or perhaps because she was beaten by an Israeli soldier when
She stopped to watch a house being demolished.
Einstein wrote Roosevelt
With news of the explosive power
Of bombs that used a chain reaction.
Einstein--like me a Zionist--were he alive today might
Write the Prime Minister and explain:
If you don't want bombs to explode
You don't start chain reactions.
