POEM: On Fire and Ice — Owed to Aaron Bushnell

Aaron Bushnell, an active-duty U.S. air force senior airman, committed self-immolation by fire to protest the U.S. sponsored Israeli genocide of Gaza. His final cry was “Free Palestine.”

On Fire and Ice: Owed to Aaron Bushnell

Fire and Ice, by Robert Frost

Some say the world will end in fire,
Some say in ice.
From what I’ve tasted of desire
I hold with those who favor fire.
But if it had to perish twice,
I think I know enough of hate
To say that for destruction ice
Is also great
And would suffice.

Aaron on the side of mercy
Incarnates the cruelty to the flesh
Which pales in comparison
To the savagery to our soul
In our uniform response to Gazans
Sow demanding
A hard inferno
He unhawks his wears
Over and out
“Free Palestine”
Now a site be helled
Buy standers
Entertaining his offering
Of ultimate rewards
What kind
Of purchase
Might be required
To get it
This “Free Palestine”
Drinking in the possibilities
Perhaps with a grande beverage
Though if so
Surly it comes with ice
As American as base ball
That spectator sport
Never game
Pain for the whole cost
And what a bout
The service
That national our son
For heir men
Not just
A band of brothers
Rather humanity as a hole
Their hows on fire
Wading for just US
Un-Abel too
Bare the weight
Bye many
Scene as an emergency
Of some mental state
In patience
Out of
It’s mine
Amoral victory
Offed attributed to stallin’
The death of won is suicide
The death of thousands is foreign policy
Carry on
From the hospitable to the morgue
As natural as forced fire
On those
That plan it
On fire
Soully expecting
