They Ran

We chased them
Throughout Judaea
Into the Syrian deserts
They ran like rabbits
Running from a bear
In every direction
They scattered
They rebelled against Rome
Against their local rulers
They were zealots
Of a cause
That was lost
To every horizon
We chased them
They fought
And ran
But they were not cowardly
For their strategy allowed them
To keep fighting
And we were compelled
To chase
