by Jaihoon

We swipe and touch with fingers
We forget to feel with our hearts

We boast of rights and justice
But refrain from acts of mercy

Weapons for mass destruction
But not a sword to defend the weak

A thousand saviors for pets and plants
But death alone to befriend women and babies

High definition superheroes applauded
True bravehearts go media-scorned

Gaza is the shame on our times and thoughts
Blood-thirsty Ma-Gogs has yet to be quenched

Gaza is the work of blood and bank
Of Qabeel and Qarun an evil prank

May peace prevail in the land of Mary’s Son
Till the day when from West shall rise the Sun
