I wrote the poem after reading about the young woman suicide bomber whose brother and fiance had been killed in Israeli raids on Palestine. I don't condone suicide bombers, but I think we need to be reminded about how this vicious circle of violence is perpetuated.


Sing as you dress me, my sisters;

Make me beautiful for my beloved.


Feast on figs and almonds, my brothers;

Then fetch my beloved.


Be happy for me, my sisters;

Soon you will find your beloved.


Why are you knocking at the door, my brothers?

Why is there blood on my beloved?


Gather up your tears, my sisters;

And bury them with my beloved.


Now bring me the belt, my brothers.

I must avenge my beloved.


Strap it tight to my waist, my sisters;

I am going to my beloved.


The bus is full, my brothers. For the journey.

This helps us to see the other side. We're incapable of judging one another. It's best to let God do that. Another good write.
