Never with contempt

Jesus born again in Gazan camp
He sees the planes the USA have bought
Flying overhead, his eyes are damp
With horror,pity, not contempt

He understands the history of the Jews
The Palestinian people he loves too
So often we have seen them on the News
Bleeding on the border fence like clues

This war is a projection of our hate
We are good and they are full of sin
The British left the “Arabs” to their fate
The endless fight should never have begun

Jesus was a problem, he was killed
But who will pay the escalating bill?
