Michel M.J. Shore

On October 7 Evil Was Unleashed

On October seven, evil was unleashed,

Hostages and death through the worst heinous evil;

No civilized nation can tolerate

Abhorrent hatred of any people.


Anti-Semitism the world’s litmus test

Is the canary in the mineshaft.

Not only are the Israelis and Jews

Targeted but next each human being.


First they came for the Jews and the Israelis;

Now they await to come for all the rest;

To create a World State of Terror,

Removing every remnant of decency.


The world can never again tolerate

A genocide of any people!


That would spell the end of civilization;

Yet, faith and conscience will awaken the human soul to a new tomorrow!
