We Are Responsible
Sandy Hook, so many children murdered,
I saw Obama cry. Gaza today hundred of
children murdered blown into the air like
ragdolls, broken limbs empty eyes; does
Obama cry today? Brothers can you spare
a tear so easily spilt when watching a film
on TV, for the children of Gaza? Or are you
sinking into apathy, blaming the victims?
This ghetto revolt, this time we cannot say
“We didn´t know,” wringing our damp hands
finding excuses, deflecting the cause of this
slaughter, but to no avail, we are responsible!
What happens in Gaza now will toll far into
the future and demand its exact retribution.
