To The Father in Fallujah Who Buried His Son in His Garden

by Nesreen Melek | Axis Of Logic |


Lift your warm son's body and scream as you haven't screamed before and ask them what has your son done to them?

Let his blood drip on the soil, don't wash it, let it stay to remember their atrocities and ask them what has your son done to them?


Dig a small hole in your garden, let your sonšs body rest in peace and ask them what has your son done to them?


Spread his arms like a bird, let his soul fly far away and ask them what has your son done to them?


Cover his body with the fertile soil from your garden, and ask them what has your son done to them?


Plant a white flower on his grave and ask them what has your son done to them?


Water the flower with your tears and ask them what has your son done to them?


Fertilize the flower with the blood of the Iraqi civilians who were killed during their shock and awe bombing and ask them what has your son done to them?


Sit every day beside his grave, cry for your loss and ours and ask them what has your son done to them?


Pray for his soul to rest in heaven and ask Him to forgive them for their acts and ask them what has your son done to them?


Get a white tombstone, write the names of all the kids who lost their lives during their liberation and ask them what has your son and all other son other sons, done to them


Let the tombstone be as high as it should be, take a picture of the tombstone, give it to them and ask them what has your son done to them?
