Poem – Who Cares?

Does anyone care about Palestine
about the bombs and the ‘mines
about the mothers and children,
about this genocide?

Does anyone care about people dying
beyond wringing our hands and quietly sighing
and some hopless mutterings
when we see them crying?

Does anyone care what Israel are doing
are or we still, incredulously, wooing
this murderous regime
that we should be removing?

Does anyone care about Palestine
about this holocaust, happening in our time
where people are being murdered just because
they are on the wrong side of the line?

If we do not care about our Palestinian hypocrisy
then what of democracy?
for we are surely complicit
in this horrendous atrocity!
