Master of the Universe

Shdemot, Platform for the Kibbutz Movement, Edition 53, Winter 5734, p. 127

Please, increase the strength of your signals

Here I am

I cannot hear, I do not know, whether

Again you have thrust an iron flower in your antenna

Lapel, you are so delicate why

Are you so spineless, why are you always

A citizen. Can I be heard well, over,

Over, you also sound disrupted, you

Sound injured, you

In the valley arrange a peripheral campaign. Other mountains

And Sea of Galilee

Announce the strength of your signals, on the radar

We cannot see your face, why

Are you not making tracks, why are you not

Fighting, should we send you motorized assistance, I

Am full of belief

That it will not come and not return. A black

Wound. Please weaken

The strength of your signals

The tree tops of the cypresses in the evening

Futilely they are whispering your name, and the solitary

Northern star, please

Navigate your army of carriages

Where will it lead them

Please, close your eyes, now I

Can hear. Roger, You can finally

Die. A bereaving father, I already cannot

Feel

The winter tears and they will say kaddish (mourning prayer) for you
