Weapon of Love

Palestine Peace

Make this poem
Into fire

Mould it
Into a bomb

Launch it
Over the
High wall
Of murdering lies

Make each line
A bullet of justice
A jab of the Divine

Sing it
In front of torture

Sing it
In front of madness

Sing it
Until this evil dies

This poem is your weapon
Explosive of love

Let it rain down upon the enemy
Mercilessly
Until it blasts open
His garrisoned heart

This poem
Is a tank
A machine gun
A machete

It rolls from the land
It swells from the sea
It commands the air

And it will march
Tirelessly

Until Palestine is free
