Under One Thick Skin (poem)

Branches bear blood

connected to the navel of nature

From Valencia to Jaffa

seeds of labor and peace

scatter through the grass

Pry open the fruit

and you will see

no section is superior

Every section is equal

If only the world was an orange

with all divisions united

under one thick skin

-Jack M. Freedman (Jacob Moses)
