my soul is Arab

my tongue is English

is a war of poetry


The English always take what the Arabs have,
But lucky for them,
Arabs are hospitable, generous, forgiving.

We are returning,
make no mistake, we are returning.
We wont be coming armed with guns,
in retribution for the lives you’ve taken.
But armed with poetry, enamoured with prose,
we’ll defeat you, and win the hearts of your own,
not by the sword,
but by the word.
by the word.

    1. I am, indeed of Arab background. Born and raised in Australia, technically of Australian nationality but DNA, remains even thousands of years after we’ve severed connections, it wakes in the progeny of our progeny
