A Shakespearean sonnet for Habima!

 

Shakespeareans for Poetic Justice present:

                    A Sonnet for Habima

 
 
If all the world’s a stage – why then, the stage

Must play its part if we would change the world.

Whence this commotion?  Why such howls of rage

The moment that our banners are unfurled?

 
In Shakespeare’s time, an audience was moved

By speeches about justice and compassion.

The Bard, methinks, could only have approved

Of protests carried out in such a fashion.

 
We’ll take no lessons from those fools who claim

That politics can’t mix with the theatre.

If actors break the law, they are to blame.

Perform in settlements?  They should know better!

 
Attempts to whitewash Israel just got harder:

Now “Globe to globe” meets global Intifada.
