The Olive Tree Howls For Justice

By: Fadi Zanayed

See the Palestinian lady hugging a tree
Not just any tree but an olive tree
See the olive branches cut to the ground
As an Israeli soldier stands around
See the bulldozer which did the massacre
The massacre of an olive tree acre  
Listen to the agony coming from her face
As the soldiers stands in disgrace
Listen to the tree as it stretches out its arms
As if it is calling out to God to see the harms
Listen to the wind as it blows in the sky
Howling injustice my oh my!
