Treasure Island

Wall Slices Palestine


Wall slices Palestine,
wall fence, human shame
wall steals water
wall divides town
wall abomination
wall is lie
claims to stop bombs
but really serves
to steal farmland
from peaceful farmers
stop parents
from reaching hospital
with dying child
encircle town
leave victims on both sides.
whose security
demands this prison?

wall thief
wall killer
wall gives settlers
stolen wells
Stolen fields
Stolen orchards.
kills civilization
makes racist accusation
commits genocide
Read the definition
Mouth propaganda
You can’t kill truth
wall is crime
wall is human shame
Tear down wall
Use stones
For garden
To nourish both

poet Robert Louis Stevenson

AT last she comes, O never more
In this dear patience of my pain
To leave me lonely as before,
Or leave my soul alone again.... Read complete »
