A Bridge Of Peace
"They shall sit every man under his vine and under his fig tree, and none shall make them afraid." (The Bible, Micah 4.4)
"He who walks in peace, walk with him." (The Koran, Sura 48)
My Muslim sister, daughter of Abraham like me,
Let us build a sturdy bridge
From your olive world to mine,
From my orange world to yours,
Above the boiling pain of acid rain prejudice -
And hold human hands high
Full of free stars of twinkling peace
I do not want to be your oppressor
You do not want to be my oppressor,
Or your jailer, or my jailer,
We do not want to make each other afraid
Under our vines and under our fig trees
Blossoming on a silvered horizon
Above the bruising and the bleeding
Of poisoned gases and scuds.
So, my Arab sister, let us build a strong bridge of
Where each shall sit with her baby
Under her vine and under her fig tree -
And none shall make them afraid.
I Want to Kill You War
I want to kill you war, forever,
I want to kill you war
They just know how to kill
A Green Week
A week like fresh mint,
"Have a green week!"
Who will give me
Listen to the song "A Green Week" (in Hebrew)
