Purim Reflections

Upon this Purim Day, my mind could not help but turn to the recent tragedy in Brussels and to the even more tragic lack of response by the POTUS.  Literally choosing to fiddle while Rome burns, Barack Obama barely paused in his meeting with one of the world's most awful dictators to express any sorrow and chose "dancing with the stars" over offering any comfort to the families of the American and allied dead and wounded.

I invite you to read today's offering in Songs of Eretz Poetry Review for my poetic turn on the subject:  http://eretzsongs.blogspot.com/2016/03/poem-of-day-purim-2016-by-editor.html.  Barack Obama is the Haman of our Age--there, I said it.  May a Queen arise to drown out his name forever (and I don't mean Hillary).
