to
israel

other countries

if we really want
the killing
to
stop
we’ll deduct
from
those funds
for
each

the number of deaths
already this year
some countries

us
money

 

mirror mirror on the wall…

except the mirror’s image

ain’t for freedom or justice
such rallying cries
are just corporate marketing
