In decolonization, there is therefore the need of a complete calling in question of the colonial situation. If we wish to describe it precisely, we might find it in the well known words: “The last shall be first and the first last.” Decolonization is the putting into practice of this sentence. That is why, if we try to describe it, all decolonization is successful.F. Fanon

Metaphysics

Humankind has edged closer to “the precipice” our lances and swords haven’t been beaten into plowshares they’ve been transformed into D.I.M.E. bombs Cluster bombs F-16’s Drones. That promise remains…unfulfilled.

From the heavens the same heavens that descend Rahma a different kind of revelation — covered in the fog of phosphorous — in the tongues of revelation, leaflets drop, thousands and thousands of pieces of paper – from Hebrew minds translating into Arabic: “Leave…”

Operation Cast Lead

Operation Cast Lead or God’s Wrath or Grapes of Wrath or Israel in the Star role of this Broadway play or maybe it’s simply some fresh Israeli hip-hop phonics for: “Cast lead into those motherf’er’s.”

The Arab Street

If you search for this street you can find it.

It’s the one lined with date-palm trees fig trees olive trees and scenes of mountains winds of desert songs of prayer it stretches East and West like the equator around the earth it curses Altien and Abiedien while building them with its hands…The chorus of its caravans: “Every Oppressor will have his Day.”

“The Last Shall be First and the First Shall be Last”

The day after the seizure of Fire has ceased the beast machines will drone and burn their way back into Canaan having casted lead and fled…Gaza ground zero dark depleted like Uranium shells silent on its streets, rockets bearing roses will hit Sderot with messages: “Let them know: We are Free!”
