And the Rockets Red Glare, the Bombs Bursting in Air

Once again, we have Israeli air force attacks in Gaza, targeting and killing members of the Islamic Jihad, bringing terror to ordinary citizens there. Once again we have rocket attacks on Israel, killing and harming innocent people, bringing terror to half the country.

Perhaps if we all sing, in harmony, the following song (to the following well-known tune), our leaders will heed our call... (well we can always hope, and singing it won't make things worse)

Oh say can you see
all the terror around
as we bomb and kill them
and they shoot rockets at us 

This is our daily life
it's a mess, yes it is
as we spend all our time
running quickly for cover

When the sky lights up so
we can't bask in its glow
for it heralds the call
for more killing and harming

Oh say our dear 'leaders'
why do you hate us sooooo?
help us live,
without these 'lights'
and the darkness
they bring
