Neela Nath

Gaza, A Prison-house

Wolves howl and moan
Looking at the sky
Without The Sun and Moon.
Mornings bring no light
There and no bird sings.
Bloodshed, mass killing
And corpses of thousands,
Intensify their crime.
The prisoners can't flee,
From Gaza, a prison-house,
except being a member of morgue.

    Thanks for your comment.It's an age-old problem.The Gaza–Israel conflict, taking place in the region of the Gaza Strip and southern Israel, is a part of the long-term Israeli–Palestinian conflict. It began long ago.I read in newspaper that entire Gaza has turned into Prison.People are being killed like rats there.

    One must realize that Gaza was captured in the 1967 war. It is an occupied territory and people of Gaza are fighting for their freedom. It is not a dispute, it is an example of might is right. (Report) Reply
