Is Abraham Still Our Father?


If Abraham is still our father

Who is the father of those bombing

Our brothers and sister at the Gaza Strip?


If Abraham is still our father

Who are the wolves massacring

Our brothers and sisters in Northern Nigeria?


If Abraham is still our father

Who are the chimps constantly butchering

Our men, women and children in Tiv and Igbo land?


If Abraham is still our father

Why are guns never silent in the Middle East?

Why are cities in Yemen and Syria in a ghost state?


If Abraham is still our father

Why are Jewish and Arab nations in perpetual war?

Whose fault is it that fratricide has become for us a game?


If Abraham is still our father

When will we stop killing one another?

Which father is proud of his warring offspring?


Jews, Christians, Muslims say we’re all siblings

All claiming to have in Abraham a father

To share the hope of a paradise to come

A Messiah yet to come or still to return

Yet we kill, maim, and bomb one another


So, how can Abraham still be our father?
