Mahmoud Al Sarsak – A matter of life and death

I disagree with the great Bill Shankly
Death still hovers in the South Gaza strip
Rafah arrest denounced by Amnesty
No indictment, just an iron clad grip

Humanity hushed, meek and blind in denial
Three year detention a truly tragic flaw
No formal charges, certainly no trial
Under the "Unlawful Combatants Law"

Administrative detention and starved of justice
Hell of a red card for the Balata Youth star
Alarm from FIFA shows up gross remiss
Step in Platini, Chomsky, Kanoute, Cantona

Hunger strike protesting that which is so unfair
Mass striking Palestinian prisoners raise their voice
Mahmoud’s plight stresses others out there
Ramallah’s Nimr and Olympian Abu Rois
