Sonnet Nr.03 Tragedy in Gaza

In the Gaza Extermination Zone
unacceptable by any measure  
the dogged pursuit of Hamas erasure  
kills civilians in and out of their homes;
as buildings collapse, hear the crunch of bones  
relentless missiles fired with a leisure  
that clock religious measure-for-treasure  
dating back to fantasy chromosomes
 
Strange, Palestinians too are Semitic  
Jewish-Arab brotherhood rejected  
extremists in charge, apocalyptic,  
fellow humans march for peace, suspected
meanwhile, weapons-makers, parasitic  
are rocketing profits, war-addicted.

(as an aside, America has provided 75-80% of Israel's weaponry over the last 70+ years. Other western countries have provided the rest).
The best humanitarian aid would be to stop supplying weaponry to Israel.
