Charges and countercharges

Echo through the ages

And no one quite remembers

All the different stages

Just who began this mess

We'll never really know

It wasn't written down

What happened long ago

No longer seems to matter

Why they can't relate

Now buried in their genes

Are testaments of hate

For those who chose to live

Within the Promised Land

The gulf of hate is deep

And far too wide to span

Author's Notes/Comments: 

A news program described the Middle East tensions as a "Gulf of Hate".  Sadly true!
