Unlucky Me

Lucky me, I used to be a tall tree

I was burned down, but a flower survived

Unlucky me, Hamas wants to kill me

How contrived these worse than ISIS derived

Lucky me, I am already deceased

Another disease saved me from that hell

Unlucky me, I was revived, released

It must have been a Frankenstein-like spell

Lucky me, I’m a woman in love, still

I missed my husband, who wrote about love

Unlucky me, he cannot see his rill

And anything else of me to speak of

Lucky us, we will survive once again

Lucky us, our enemies will be slain
