THE SECOND COMING

On the banks of the river Tigris
We sat down and cried,
And watched the sky for the sign
Of the Second Coming of Baghdad

 It’s our hope so keep on looking
For the very last act of God
The day when children perished
Was the day when HE died.
“Shame!” was the last word heard
From the graves of soccer fields
Shame on your values!
Shame on your deeds!
And shame, big shame
On the silence of the World.
