Somewhere embedded in the still's a meme,

a mission I once was on, hostages

were involved, I was on a rescue team.

Israelis under Idi's auspices.

Wood's debut; Bronson had had a few.

Between scenes, I sat there reading Nietzsche,

far from the madding extras. "I'm peachy,"

I said to Charles when asked, "and a Jew."

True, a goyim Jew, brought in for the picture --

a tokin' laughing Jew. Entebbe?

No idea. Like the death camps. No, Bibi,

then, to ruin my vibe. I was hip, sure.

IDF muscle toughs will be here soon

to take me, like Alice, to the "Jew" moon.
