Another Christmas carol for Palestine
More from St James, Piccadilly
Twelve assassinations
Eleven homes demolished
Ten wells obstructed
Nine sniper towers
Eight gunships firing
Seven checkpoints blocking
Six tanks a-rolling
Five settlement rings.
Four falling bombs
Three trench guns
Two trampled doves
And an uprooted olive tree.
Outside of a liturgical context I’m singing right along but most of you knew that.
