One Million Dollars….

The hikers’ release

For half a million a piece

Brings joy to our nation and friends;

But my logical fear

Which should loom loud and clear

When viewed through a pro-Israel lens:

Iran gained global cred

Just one day ahead

Of Mahmoud’s scheduled UN address;

He’ll use his goodwill

To slander Israel

And help out with Palestine‘s quest.

So congrats Josh and Shane

For an end to your pain

But your freedom is reason for pause;

The million we spent

Almost certainly went

To fund an undeniable cause:

To buy ammunition

And deadlier weapons

To point at Iran’s Jewish neighbor;

And the ransom, you see

Came from taxes and fees

Paid from American labor.
