Beit Hanun

Sisters of the shattered cities,
your wall of veils is yet more powerful
than the concrete of the widow makers.

The armoury of the pitiless -
satellite surveillance, jets,
gunships, tanks, cluster bombs,
DU, chemical weapons, bio toxins,
nuclear warheads- is as dust
in the face of your defiance.

The stones in the hands of your sons
were once witness to the rise
and fall of the omnipotent,
thus we are not the only ones
who know this history and answer
your courage’s call.

Mere words cannot do justice to the courage of these women.
