BLAME THE JEWS

A Poetic Balm for Bigots with a Blameworthy Conscience
star target

If you haven’t got a hankie, Blame the Jews, If your spouse makes hanky-panky, Blame the Jews If your trusted friends deceive you If your relatives all grieve you You can always chuck it if you Blame the Jews.

When your favorite stock goes tumbling Blame the Jews, When your government is bungling Blame the Jews Like a lap dog, like a football, like a jester, like a clown, They’re a cooperative minority you can always kick around, So don’t just sit there grumbling at the news, Blame the Jews, Blame the Jews, Blame the Jews.

Though you’re thrown out by your honey Blame the Jews, Though you’ve drunk up all your money Blame the Jews Though you cheat those who befriend you, Though the saints above condemn you, You’re a prince of virtue when You blame the Jews.

If you hear voices in your head, Blame the Jews, Saying: Bin Laden’s in your bed, Blame the Jews. If you don’t know who’s behind The terror in your mind The answer’s not hard to find Blame the Jews.

‘Stead of beating up your children, Blame the Jews ‘Stead of feeling guilty, you ken Blame the Jews, More convenient than the tranquilizers you keep on your shelves ‘Cause if you forget to blame them, they will always blame themselves. So not matter what the odds are, you can’t lose Blame the Jews, Blame the Jews, Blame the Jews.

(But always be careful to refer to them as “Israelis/Zionists”.)

About the Author: Melvyn Millman was born in the USA in 1934. He moved to Israel with his Sabra wife, Chanita, in 1970, and had been living in Jerusalem since 1972. Melvyn started writing poetry at 14. In 1989 he joined the Jerusalem Voices poetry group and participated in its monthly readings. Some of his poems were published in most of the last 15 Voices Annual Anthologies of poetry. Others were published in a South African Jewish newspaper and also in the Jerusalem Post. Besides being a highly respected teacher in a local high school, he was also a gifted amateur actor who co-wrote and co-starred in a full-length play. Following his untimely death, his family produced a delightful volume of his collected poems.
