“Sometimes I don’t know why I write–anything. You see news of murderous Israeli occupation bombing the hell out of Gaza, and you say, does anything matter? Was that what Adorno meant when he said “No poetry after Auschwitz“? But how can you kill poetry? I would not. Not for any reason.“ – As’ad
And today I was hit by the worst news ever from Iraq. Not the intentional murder of civilians by the “liberating” troops, and not the raping of a teenage and the murder of her family by the “liberating” troops, these may just have been tactics to “win hearts and minds”.
“No poetry after Auschwitz”, maybe, but here is hip-hop for Gaza and Palestine.
