On the Killing of Five Sisters in Gaza

Five little girls asleep in their beds.
Five little sisters and now they are dead.
Israel, Israel what have you done?
What can you say- that you think you have won?
The blood of these innocents covers your hands.
Is it not enough that you have stolen their lands?
So sleep little ones- you have earned your rest.
With crowns of the martyred you will be blessed.
No more must you fear the bombs in the night.
No more will the hunger, the thirst be your plight.
Safe now in God’s hands do you lie-
You will no longer suffer,
But we still may ask- WHY?
