Flattened ninth evening as Nablus in flames,
So called settlers play crap Apartheid games.
Ignored by our media, something’s wrong,
Truth, peace and justice don’t seem to belong.
Sixty six protesters dead, one each day,
Israel’s democracy blown away,
Hundreds more imprisoned, locked up in chains,
Then tear gassed in cells to add to their pains.
Knesset degenerates for all to see,
Whilst they debate “bring in death penalty”.
You don’t have to be a sharp eyed eagle
To work out how to make murder legal.
Meanwhile our media wastes precious time,
Diverts our gaze from slaughterhouse crimes.

Harry Rogers in The Red Bedroom, 4th March 2023
