FE-IVC Poem: O'Israel, Know Thou Not Palestine?

O' Israel, know thou not Palestine?
Are both not cultures with histories?
Two peoples spoilt over time entwined.

O' Palestine, know thou not Israel?
Aren't both but two of many stories?
One ebbed millennia, the other flowed.

O' Jacob, see your sons of Rachel
triumphantly trample demographics
true to geolocation, history skewed?

O' Philistia, art thou not a Philistine,
sent to end disputes via new tactics?
Prefer negotiation or continued feud?
