The Hooded Crow of Jerusalem – A Poem

(Photo: Max Reeves, supplied)

By Niall McDevitt

 

at the Citadel of Jerusalem

built by John Hyrcanus I

there is barbed wire and yellow

weeds

 

the hooded crow of Jerusalem calls

from the Minaret of the Mosque, raw

muezzin

 

in a courtyard below the ramparts

are jeeps which say, in English,

POLICE

 

an invisible deus-ex-machina

hums a military-industrial

hum
