Boycott Poem for Palestine

729 is the number of the crime

committed by Israel against Palestine

It starts off the bar code; you know, those bars:

bars on houses, schools, clinics and cars

bars on passports and on olive trees

bars on Palestine and on you and me.

729 is a number you can’t forget

when you sit numbed out by your TV set:

solidarity with Gaza is up to you

avoid 729  is what you can do.
