The Razing of Gaza

by Lordinajamjar

In the rockets red glare,
Bombs bursting in air,
Gazan children perish.
Are there none we cherish?
By the dawns early light
Comes shame, proof of the night.
Families blown apart.
Victims of a cold golem heart.
Don't say you cannot see
In to the land of the unfree.
So loudly they hailed
Humanity has failed.
Oh say, does that blue lone star banner now wave
O'er the landstrip of the unfree
Home of the mass grave?

A golem is a creature formed out of a lifeless substance such as dust or earth that is brought to life by ritual incantations and sequences of Hebrew letters. The golem, brought into being by a human creator, becomes a helper, a companion, or a rescuer of an imperiled Jewish community. *(Wikipedia)
