    Poem of the Month, May 2012



    By Ada Aharoni
    Dedicated to the memory of the Israeli Poet Amir Gilboa

    When I see a bird
    and I say bird
    they say bird

    When I hear its song
    and I say song
    they say song

    But when I see our sons
    And I say sons
    They say soldiers

    And when I see bombs
    and I say bombs
    they say peacemakers

    And when I see nuclear pollution
    and I say poisoned radiation
    they say energy

    And when I see nuclear pollution
    and I say nuclear holocaust
    They say deterrence!

    What kind of deterrence
    Can be had
    When we are all dead?
