Why Palestine

By Alain English

In the middle of her flattened home a girl starts asking why
The soldiers came to take her home and knock it to the ground
And leave her and her family feeling anguish and despair

The girl cannot comprehend her family's despair
The people of the world look on and think to themselves why
The politics does not change what is happening on the ground

And the girl stands there looking up there from the ground
Falls to her knees and cries with anguish and despair
Why Palestine, why Palestinians, why us, why me, why?
