A poem by Billy the Blogging Poet
What fate awaits the children,
their mothers, fathers too.
For two they take two hundred
and there's nothing we can do.
The lie they tell, "In self defense,"
but revenge is all they seek.
They cannot kill the mighty
so they choose to kill the meek.
And when the battle's ended
will anything be changed?
The minds of men cannot be won
with bombs and burnt remains.
The message will be lost on those
who cried and paid the cost
while our leaders stuff their faces
on the flesh of children lost.
Isn't it about time the world comes to understand: as Lebanon dies so dies the world.
