Poem: Israeli Violent Storms Strike Palestine

Israeli Violent Storms Strike Palestine

By Genevieve Cora Fraser

An ill wind blew
From Washington
To Tel Aviv today
Bringing power
Lines down
In lock-step
To Return
DeLay's bill
Spun around
Like a micro
Blast passed
The House
Jewish rights
To return
To a place
They never
Were but left
Native Palestinians
Blown away
Strewn about
The Roadblocks
On the Road Map
Up against the Wall
Slammed into the rubble
Of a Concentration
Camp existence
By Israeli troops
Lightning swift
Raids whisked barefoot girls
In pajamas away
In Nablus
For interment
Torture and abuse
Fathers blown away
By snipers boys
Pelted with hail
Of bullets mother's
Mourn arrested
In their tracks
As American
Made and paid
For fighter jets
And helicopter
Gunships streak
And blacken
Skies sudden
Bursts of thunder
Explode and roar
As lightning
Swift vengeance
Strikes the People
And Place
Zionists deny
Exists and
Are trained
By Jewish Media
To ignore
