...and we watched from a distance

oh the indifference
in the name of all things 'just'
of course in God they proclaimed their trust
the unborn though too shall pay must
for one selfish greedy nation's bloodlust

Herrenvolk  

Don't shit yourself about the ape,      
whose buttons push, and triggers pull,      
enough to see a cityscape,     
reduced...to holocaust in full.    
     
When they see blitzkrieg taking shape,     
they flashback to...an SS skull.

Murderers

I do not expect murders to disagree with Israel massacring innocent Palestinians.  
The wicked, bloodthirsty American military would do the same thing.  
 
Speaking as a mixed Jew, I do not support the evil Israeli foreign policy,  
And neither do I encourage genocide, racism, injustice, and oppression.  
 
Aggression and terrorism are wrong, but we need to identify the real terrorists.  
People who face perpetual oppression will rise up against the oppressors.

Did I Read This Somewhere?

If you want to write about Palestine,
don't mention the bombs
or the bullets
or the screaming of the wounded,

write about the teddy bear
in blood still warm and wet.

The war to end all wars never read the instructions on the tin.
Until we understand all of us are crew on Spaceship Earth,  
there will always be a Myanmar, a Gaza or Sudan,
assholes clawing their way up the same ladder of destruction
rung by greedy rung.
Only humans can make a fist from their own shit.
