Each side at pains to prove their own case
they can always justify their way
never considering their citizens plight
Ordinary people rarely having their say.
Then the bullets start to fly
followed by mortars and tanks
apartments get blown up causing homelessness
and then there’s a run on the banks.
Foreign media all fly in
obviously to get a good scoop
around the demolished buildings
with their cameramen they all troop.
Folks entire livelihoods go up in flame
for them it has now all gone
they rely on the aid available now
it’s just the choosing which one.
The cards have been dealt
a crisis may have passed
but the so needed PEACE
is unlikely…to last.
