Poem: America's Dark Passage into Israel's Hell

America's Dark Passage
Into Israel's Hell

By Genevieve Cora Fraser

Israeli surveillance drones
Above well below where Allah
Is watching the People
Mourn and shout defiance

Israeli assassination attempts
To kill the will of a People
Who have lived since the dawn
Of humanity in this place

The Arab street sees
An American project
Israel is the implement
Of world control

Israel's brutal terror
Ignites a volatile Molotov
A cocktail of smoldering outrage
Aching for martyrdom

From Baghdad to Gaza City
Neo-cons to Sharon
Delight in Occupation's
Savage legacy brought home

A global divide widens
Bondage or liberty
As the gates of hell
Fling open to swallow
The Land of the Free
