IZZY DOLLS AND BOOMER CAPS

Automatic rifles and area maps;
Bullet proof vests and tanks;
Izzy dolls and Boomer Caps
From the ICROSS Canada folk with thanks.
Aiding children of war and orphans,
In the global village of our time,
Distributed on dangerous missions,
But the peacekeepers say “that’s fine”.
Tis a sad place of excruciation,
The third world where the children are,
In the shadows of our nations,
Beyond the light of the affluent star,
But the carers at their stations,
Share a love that reaches far.
