Poem: Palestinian Martyrs Triumphant

Palestinian Martyrs Triumphant


By Genevieve Cora Fraser

Bodies borne aloft
Shut into death's release
Float in caskets swaying
On a sea of Arab hands

Palestinian assassinated
Remains charred as on a pyre
Are shielded in Prophet Green
Strew with floral offerings

Israeli forces occupied
With treacherous plots
Foment a reign of terror
Exploded in their minds

Yassin's death beats time
Alive at spirt's door
He welcomes home
The disheartened
To drink at unity's well
