a poem the muses sent me after seeing a video of children being held in the jails
of the occupation forces, Israel:
It seems so simple,
Bob, three are two sides to this story
we write poems, we speak out for justice
but, "two sides"?
In the name of justice, or the zionist goal,
to run all who are not like them off the land
shut up Bob, there are two sides
yes, two, oppression and freedom
children mind you,
but I have seen the white cops around my city hood
beat kids for calling them, the cops, what they are...
oh yes, two sides
hate and love
I do not have to choose a side, for there is only one
in the land we call Holy, peace, freedom for all peoples
and stopping Israel from its own killing fields.
children mind you, only children,
It's so simple, no violence and freedom for all. peace
peace ko shin Bob Hanson
