Two Mothers - Poem by Colin Ian Jeffery

Israeli and Palestine conflict

Prostrate with grief
Rachel weeps for a dead son
Killed by a suicide bomber.

Prostrate with grief
Sarah weeps for a dead son - -the suicide bomber
Who believed blood would set his people free.

Blood begets blood
Reprisal follows reprisal.
But there is no honour in death
Only tears of mothers for dead children.
