The drowning man 

On Saturday 

My son seeks to go 

Swimming alone 

I insist I come along 

On Saturday

A man drowned

Trying to save 

A five year old girl

Swept away

Deep into 

The sea. 

Why was the girl

Not told

To stay away

From the depth? 

Why did the man

Have To drown 

When we need

A hero alive

Today?


Prose

Thursday there was a demonstration in Tel Aviv against a declaration that homosexuals may not adopt children 

On  Saturday a homosexual man who had spoken in the demonstration had drowned Trying To save his 5 year old niece from drowning.

On Sunday I walked by a tribute to the man who had drowned and died after efforts to save his life failed.
