An Ode to Naiveté


This Palestinian boy and this Israeli girl
They don’t care that there’s a war
This Palestinian boy and this Israeli girl
They see not borders and barriers
This Palestinian boy and this Israeli girl
They don’t count bodies and bullets
This Palestinian boy and this Israeli girl
They see no blood and severed limbs
This Palestinian boy and this Israeli girl
They hear not the drums of war boom like thunder
This Palestinian boy and this Israeli girl
They speak not the rhetoric of vicious emperors
This Palestinian boy and this Israeli girl
They don’t share the silence of the guilty
This Palestinian boy and this Israeli girl
They have no blood on their hands
This Palestinian boy and this Israeli girl
They Hold hands in the midst of the burning city
This Palestinian boy and this Israeli girl
They make love where there is none to be found
This Palestinian boy and this Israeli girl
They make life
