  • Ibrahim brings home some chickpeas
    For grandmother to make hummus
    For Saturday lunch in Gaza,
    Wishing his family were safe.

    Yitzak in Tel Aviv blesses
    wine and food dipping his pitta
    Bread Into the bowl of hummus,
    Hoping his baby will be safe

    In Ireland one housing estate
    Flies the Israeli flag, across
    Town an opposing estate flies
    the Palestinian flag high.

    Peace loving people look at each
    other in pain, wondering once more,
    why politics exacerbate
    hatred between communities.
