A War upon the Occupied

A “war” upon the occupied
Confined within their camp,
Denied the chance to flee so that
Upon them we may stamp;
The U.S.A. and Israel:
Two partners, whore and tramp.

Those Arabs who once owned their land
Can now just pack and go.
Our reasons for decreeing this,
They have no need to know.
As far as they’re concerned, it’s just
Because we’ve told them so.

You see, once in the recent past,
Some Jews thought they could take
– with help from some Americans
And propaganda fake –
What Arabs had inhabited
For centuries: a stake

In their ancestral history
That no conquest can kill;
But persecution maybe might
Conform them to our will,
Which anyway has turned into
Another poison pill.
