Have we never learned, from history we remember?
Was it not enough, after ethnic cleansings endeavour?
Just how much more are we suppose, to take onboard?
Politicians numb, to suffering in the name of the lord
I walked through a city in ruins, and I wondered how?
How were we ever granted this gift, only to bestow?
The killing of innocent children, and women, and men
How did we ever get to this stage, of warfare so open?
For the eyes of the world to see, and yet we stand idle
