On Israel and Gaza


Tit for tat

You fire a missile

We fire one back.


Tit for tat, tat for tit

Innocents die

Because of it.


You clamor for peace

But keep poking the bear

When he eats you

You still don't see your err.


How is it

You don't see

Continuing this behavior

You will never be free.



Author's Notes/Comments: 

Israel and the Palistinians rights to exist do not trump each other.  Most people on both sides want to live in peace and to raise their families with normal lives.  They don't really care who is in charge.  Unfortunately, extremists cause the deaths of women and children, destroy lives, and raze their country by their actions.  The innocent populations are also at fault by allowing the extremists to stay in their midst.  Heard a saying on TV they other day, "Sleep with the Devil, don't be surprised when you wake up in hell."
