A caterpillar walks makes an ancient people homeless A corporate board talks to brush aside whatever distress A woman courageously stands with convictions noble and fierce To face and defy military commands surrenders life to engines and gears The anguish of an entire race the grief of her family drowns These mutual grievances a disgrace to those who justice pronounce A caterpillar walks its path leaving ruin and desolation Its steps directed by war hawks and the pigs and rats that run a nation To unsuspecting majorities noble words are spoken with forked tongue These suffice to sanction atrocities For trusting hearts to offer their young The cruelty of zionist vision has sealed the fate of a people For clear is the unity in decision From synagogue to Christian steeple Under the rubric of democracy puppet masters manoeuvre ruthlessly No one will question their decree All will bend at the knee
In memoriam Rachel Corrie, whose heinous murder by the state of Israel on March 16, 2003 should serve to alert the American peoples to the inhumanities they support around the world.
