Tick, Tick…Boom.

by Omayma Jabara

10 children playing in the rubble, little do they know, tomorrow they will be


eight missiles crashing into

seven homes at

six a.m.

Tick, Tick…

five people killed in our 7ara today

four of them children

three soldiers out in the middle of the night scouting for at least

two more deaths today

one bullet shot at an olive tree,

mistaken for the shadow of a man.
