War Games ... a poem

Einas Khalil (Enas Shawkat abu Khalil ... #EnasShawkat )
a five year old Palestinian child, died after being hit by a car driven by an Israeli settler near the central West Bank town of Sinjil 10-19-2014 .... Over 500,000 Israeli settlers live in settlements in the occupied West Bank, including East Jerusalem, in contravention of international law.

       War Games

It is hard to make peace
with an entity
that kills your children.

An entity that for generations
burns your orchards

your home

your land.

Hard to make peace.

Easier to rage.
Easier to protest.
Easier to be the momentum
the entity wants to entice
into self destruction.
