A poem dedicated to the Jews of Indonesia.

Take Cover.

Walking under a Kippah

With a pregnant wife in hand

Only to be surrounded

By a group of men

Who threatened death

And called him a Crazy Jew

Take cover

And wear the kippah no more

Take cover

Lie and say Christian on I.D.

For there is no Jewish option given

In the Muslim state

Take cover

Under a red, roofed synagogue

In Tondano

Find solace

As the prayers are sung

From the Siddur books

As the Shema Yisrael is heard

Take cover

under the Tallit

Take cover

As the winds come and go

Through the rustling of the Sulawesi trees

Take cover

Take cover
