As Palestine Burns

Posted on December 31, 2008


Is it New Year’s eve in Palestine?
Is there glitter on tanks to make them shine?
Will there be no bombing tomorrow?
A new year break from spreading strife and sorrow?

Will rockets, for a day, not ignite
Fires that consume everyone in sight!
Will trucks of food be allowed inside?
Will the war of hate take a pause tonight?

Will there be silence to mark the change,
That death, this day, will not be at range?
Will the New Year mean an end to fear?
Will prayers for peace be heard this year?

Will the smog clear and let the stars shine?
Will it be a New Year for Palestine?
