Repetition Tradition (PED Day 20)

It's funny
How they'd tell me
The same story
Consistently
To the point where it lost all meaning


Like an old joke
Wrapped in a recent line
They tried to kill us
G-d saved us
Let's eat


They tried to kill us
G-d saved us
Let's eat


Kill. Save. Eat.
Kill. Save. Eat.
Kill. Save. Eat.
Kill. Save. Eat.
KillSaveEatKilleSaveEat
KillsaveatKilsavet


To the point where it's been repeated enough to lose all meaning


Until recently
When I've discovered certain poetry
Which tells me
That same story
In a new way
So that it means something today


I wonder is this is the way
It used to be
For the people who came before me
If they also had trouble connecting to spirituality
And I wonder if their answer
was poetry
