Origin of name "Cast Lead"

is this poem by Chaim Nachman Bialik:

מורי הביא כרכר לי,
בן- עופרת יצוקה -
יודעים אתם לכבוד מה?
לכבוד החנוכה!


My teacher gave me a top
made from cast lead
Do you know the reason why?
In honor of Chanukah!

(Operation Cast Lead began on the last day of Chanukah)

Oh. Thank you. I know that song. I didn't know Bialik wrote the words.
