Deir Yassin Remembered
Steal Not


Steal not Al-Quds
(Jerusalem to you)
For though you make a claim
It isn't true
Take back, instead,
the land from where our parents came:
Lvov and Babi Yar
(to say the name).

And Poland, give back Plonsk
And Stanislaw, our home;
Romania, let me in
I have some fields to plant
outside of Czernowitz.

And still,
In Bukovina,
close to Suczawa,
there stands a water-driven mill:
This grist is real,
its flour mine,
but not another house
must fall
In Palestine
