Palestinian Hunger Strikers

Oppressors,
invaders,
prison guards,

imperialists...

Will never understand hunger strike...
And the power of an empty stomach...

Shrinking flesh, decaying teeth, burning eyes, stinking cell,
And behind all of this,
A mind of crystal clear vision

Bird like, wild in flying dreamOrdering the body
      again
            and again
                    and again

Sacrifice of all humanly pleasures for the one and greatest of them:
Freedom

One man's half dead body, Hope for all the rest thereafter...

And the mothers outside...
       ticking time
             ticking time
                    ticking time

Endless in their mother hearts...
      Bird like, fragile.
             Bird like hunger strikers
                    Bird like
                        Bird.
