Ode to those of Abu Zaabal and Tura
Keeping their secrets deep in their hearts
To the surface come crying out their hurts
An easy unprotected prey, Jewish were they not?
To bear all the sins of Israel in their flesh and blood
Some have in heavy silence carried their secrets to their tombs
Of physical repeated unbearable and unforgotten wounds
Four hundred helpless unjudged victims unfairly indicted
We cannot close our eyes to the tortures inflicted
The sin of being Jewish must forever be banished
So that neither man nor woman can for this be punished
The years are rapidly flying and our hair is greying
Before it is too late, it is now time to join our hearts in saying
you are among the Just among nations we shall not forget
To those of you up in the Milky Way we pay tribute and respect.
