It’s the women and children being targeted again, this time in Palestine and by the Israeli army!
Action – reaction – over reaction is a common sequence in human history, but this is getting to be ridiculous. The easy target, the easy way out, no risks involved, no rubber bullets, just kill!

Click on the image, which is a facsimile of one of Blake’s original publications, to read the poem – on display at the Tate (London).
The title links you to the Tate’s electronic page of Blake’s work, showing his original plates too!
