The Angel of Khan Younis

Weep not for Razan Ashraf al-Najjar
An angel now looking down from the stars
A mother's daughter slain by a mother's son
Picked off in the sights of an Israeli gun
A white nurse's coat no refuge from the sniper's eye
That fired the lead and watched her die
Weep because she is just another one
Taken in the blood soaked slaughter for Zion
While a shameful, silent world looks on

Husband to Julie, Dad to Mollie & Joe. Hoping that there is an emerging movement of the left. Would like to play some small part in it through my poetry.
