soon another war

Soon another year

The festivities are not over yet our animals have yet to be scared as they are when bombs fall in Gaza like the dead white horse in the road because a primitive Israeli
soldier kills anything that moves, obeying orders
I was once a recruit, learned to present arms with heavy German rifles, left over from a real war, and they didn't give us bullets to fire.
A trained young soldier is dangerous he has been given an order (perhaps unsaid but implicated ) to shoot first and ask questions later.
One takes it, for this soldier's background hatred is natural like mother's milk.
At an all-girl luncheon, a mother tells her son is a pilot
and an officer, the thought that her son drops bombs
on Palestinians makes everyone giggle because they knew the boy used to be so kind.
Kind, the mother of Yitzhak Rabin's killer said he did
his dis for the betterment of Israel the people applauded
and soon set him free.
From the river to the sea flies the Likud eagle, who
is indistinguishable from the American eagle
