Tears for Rachel

Rachel came into this world
eyes open to suffering


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


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