Tears for Rachel


Rachel came into this world
eyes open to suffering
poverty
hunger
repression
oppression

 

A child until her last breath
wiser than the elders surrounding her

Rachel cried for the world


angel of justice
self assigned job to shine light
where world media and eyes
refused to go

 

There,she found
real people treated like animals
and worse
the hypocrisy of her homeland
paying the jailers of beautiful children
mothers and fathers
the future of Palestine

 

Warrior Angel Rachel
stood before the false gods of Israel America
pointing to them
decrying their absence of shame
humanity

 

and in a heartbeat
the tractor came
driver shedding not
a tear for Rachel
