Congratulations Germany?!

I’m primarily an Italian football fan, but tend to also appreciate and like Germany’s team play and defense.

So of course I was cheering on for the German team throughout the night.

But at the same time I was half wishing they’d loose, not for the sake of Argentina, but more that of Lebanon.
You see looking back at the history of Germany winning world cups I noticed asomething common in the dates and the lebanese history.

In 1974, Germany won the world cup, a couple of days later trouble started sparkling up all around Lebanon, and before you know it, we had a 15 year civil war raging on and destroying the country:

The second time Germany won the world cup, was in 2006, the year israeli bombs were destroying all bridges around the country after first targeting the airport; and instilling fear in the crowds:

Now how do these link all my fears together? Simple:

A couple of minutes after the end of the 2014 World Cup games ending with Germany taking the world cup once again, a news update arrived:

LBC Lebanon News, Urgent Update

“Israel responds to the two missiles sent from Lebanon’ s Raas El Ain with many rockets launched onto Khirach Al Hanya and Al Aazariyah…”

That was fast…. so here we go again or will we defeat our sour fate?

Flight

We alldream,
A dream of flight,
I’ve taken that dream,
I’ve beaten the challenge!

Crawl

A crawling form,
Forever changing,
Follows the crest,
Never mixing.

Once

It’s like a dream,
But feels so real,
I once was here, iron and steam,
Now I am past, a train in a dream.

Trickster

I am a trickster my name is rough,
If you can guess it you’re tuff,
I trick the bees, the flies, the fleas,
I am simply a red colored leaf.

Shadow

A shadow sweeps by,
On the broken ripples,
Heading down,
Following the light.
