Filisteen (Palestine)



Israeli choppers drop down
sheets of paper which state
that Palestinians must start
to quickly evacuate
or else it'll rain bombs
if they are too late
Thus they leave their homes
but where to migrate?

Among the victims who have
in hospitals been crammed
mothers, fathers and babies
Have innocence been damned?

What kind of sinful fault
can a little child make?
to shake his mom's body
hoping she'll wake

Songs and poems were made
by the poets and estranged
with objections and protests
but nothing has changed

Palestine is the country
of the free Palestinians
Palestine is always
and forever Arabian

Dema Al-Obaidy Claim this poet

لم يعرفوني في الظلال التي تمتص لوني في جواز السفر.......وكان جرحي عندهم معرضا لسائح يعشق جمع الصور......لم يعرفوني..آه لا تتركي كفي بلا شمس.......لأن الشجر يعرفني؛ تعرفني كل اغاني المطر.......لا تتركيني شاحبا كالقمر! ......عار من الاسم من الانتماء في تربة ربيتها باليدين......ايوب صاح اليوم ملء السماء لا تجعلوني عبرة مرتين!........يا سادتي يا سادتي الانبياء لا تسألوا الاشجار عن اسمها لا تسألوا الوديان عن امها......من جبهتي ينشق سيف الضياء ومن يدي ينبع ماء النهر.........كل قلوب الناس جنسيتي.......فلتسقطوا عني جواز السفر. more…
