Israeli Beasts of Prey Ravage Again & Again

Israeli Beasts of Prey Ravage Again & Again & Again

By Genevieve Cora Fraser

IDF soldiers, Israel's finest
Snaked their way
Into the heart of Rafah
Refugee society Monster
Men with bulldozer claws
Tore at the hearths
And homes rebuilt
From earlier devastations
An earthquake of hatred
Assaulted the poor
Tormented the sick
Ripped the lame
From limb to limb
Urinated and defecated
Over the treasured
Belongings impossible
For them to carry
Israel's Finest stole
Shekels, jewelry
Cell phones
Anything and everything
As their forefathers
Taught them
Al Nakba lightning
Strikes once, twice
Thrice over and over
Snipers swift as jackals
Ravage the lives
But not the souls
Of the People
Israel reviles
As it revels
In inhumanity
Looses its grip
On sanity
(If you don't like the critique, stop playing the role!)
