They are refugees
but there is no refuge in this war.
They will be hunted like their brothers
in Palestine were before.

Israel has given them a choice:
refugee or terrorist.
And in a sick and sordit twist
Bush already said
the phrase that means "We want you dead",
that means "You have no choice but run or fight".
You get the gist:
"Are you with us or are you terrorist?"

White phosphorus - banned,
this year's napalm.
No attrocity too great
to express the greed for power, and hate.
Anything to instill the fear,
of which Dahr Jamail wrote:
"wary, with the aimless stare".
What can we do?
Go out and vote?
