bright
barren
bones
lie exposed
in an open grave
arabs
and
jews
together
in a mass grave
those
who
dared
to ask
for freedom
for
all

and they did unto others…

just like before
the hole was dug
perhaps it was
more of a trench
a mass grave
for the living
families
were herded in
beaten men
pregnant women
helpless children
all into this ghetto
sealed
with walls
wires
checkpoints
ships
and of course rules
for maintaining
social standards
everyone in
no one out
like every
grave
