Whose life is it anyway?


So they’ve ceased firing
For how long, I wonder
A year, maybe two
‘fore the bombs again thunder

Where life is cheap
And dignity even cheaper
The wrinkles tell their own story
As the wounds just get deeper

That child silenced for ever
Was she Jew or non-Jew
Collateral damage, they say
And continue to bomb anew

And we, from the sidelines, watch
This drama year after year
From the comfort of our cosiness
We shed the odd tear.
