“Oh rascal children of Gaza”

Oh rascal children of Gaza August 25 2014
“Oh rascal children of Gaza. You who constantly disturbed me with your screams under my window. You who filled every morning with rush and chaos. You who broke my vase and stole the lonely flower on my balcony. Come back, and scream as you want and break all the vases. Steal all the flowers. Come back..Just come back..”

Khaled Juma, a Palestinian poet from Rafah, Gaza wrote this poignant tribute to the now over 500 children of Gaza killed by Israeli bombing; Sixteen Minutes to Gaza illustrated his poem with photos: http://smpalestine.com/2014/08/24/illustrated-poetry-oh-rascal-children-of-gaza/
