When God Cries

By Rassool Jibraeel Snyman

I heard a tear fall
Somewhere in the universe
I was saddened
For no one listened
No one cared
The child cried alone
In Gaza
The dogs of war
Are pitiless
Devouring all with savagery
And mindless abandon
Jerusalem in her left hand
Bethlehem in her right
A bullet hole in her chest
I heard a tear fall
Somewhere in the universe
Was that god crying.

(South Africa – August 03, 2009; "Songs from the Ether")
