  1. Blessed is she
    Among women

    Yassar Arafat
    Understood that well
    Get back in there
    You not leaving
    Till we fix this mess

    And a woman
    Did compass a man
    This Deborah
    Took no prisoners

    Her battle for JUSTICE
    JUDGEMENT. TRUTH
    And EQUITY

    Encompassed
    The whole enchilada
    The UN too
    Knew that well

    Are there yet
    Any left like her
    Step forward

    Fill the shoes
    Of this valiant
    Daughter if Zion
