Palestinian Poetry Slam

From Palestinian Media Watch:

My reaction:

anyone at all, can write a poem
its not very hard to let your mind roam
just make sure it rhymes
discuss “israeli war crimes”
but 67 years later no home.

You can throw rocks at cars
shoot random rockets from far
whine about occupation,
and not having a nation
but we already know who you are.

one day you might use your brain
I know that it will cause you great pain
but your entire story
is just a little bit hoary
and you are a loser in the end just the same.
