Ode to Tuvia Bielski (1906-1987), a Jewish resistance fighter turned taxi driver after the Nazi occupation, disillusioned.

Ode to Tuvia Bielski

I put down the gun for a guitar, a pistol for a pick

To strum a little and wax lyrical with some fanciful licks

Was not my call for mine was blood

I’d leap over that wall to blast that God-damn truck!

Was not my call if not of Him

To lay down my arms and write a hymn.

Life sucks.

~ L.S. James (2013)
