I Am A Tourist - Poem by Tony Adah

I am a tourist and a citizen
Of the world
No leaning on a wall
That's is black or white
An observer of butterflies
And flowers and bees and honey and the stings
I am in Jerusalem
One city, two settlements
I am in Hebron
On apartheid street
In a dilemma where to go
One building two faiths
I am in Gaza
I am told the sea and the sky
Are all occupied
Still the land is free?
If Jesus will come back to his home place
He'd be utterly confounded.
