Gush Katif: I Remember

They would not budge

If it were them

Let go now?

“Hard”, “tragic”

                               In their words

No room for mercy


                           In my words

Tragedy strikes

Have we not learned?


Spoken by generations gone

Inquisitions, pogroms

                                  Not loud enough

Did they hear?

Maybe more


Our land whose?

                           Do you want my land?

No, peace

Back home

                         Do you understand?

Freedom at last

Gathering of exiles

                                Who is talking?

History here

One only
