GOD BLESS OUR LEADERS

The inventor of murder was the Christian God,
According to the texts of a biblical book,
That sweet heaven replaced the crimson sod,
Forgiving the atrocities they undertook.
All the great leaders waged war in our time,
All knowing that condemnation would follow,
For while we are winning the fighting is fine,
But to lose soldiers is a hard thing to swallow.
We have a system for electing our leaders,
Short terms that can easily be changed,
For it is the people who manage procedures,
That is how freedom is carefully arranged.
So God bless our far sighted leaders,
For their courage and fair interchange.
