WILL WE WEEP FOR THE CHILDREN?

Who will weep for the children – the Children of Iraq?
Slaughtered by suicide bombers in daily deadly attacks!
I weep for Africa’s Aids Orphans – I keep asking myself why?
So many little children have to linger, suffer, and die?

Hateful men train Arab children to strap the dynamite on
And send them out to detonate each horrible homemade bomb!
Yes I weep for the children who wear these dynamite packs
Because brutal barbarians use them in religious attacks!

They are killing other children along with the dad’s and Mom’s
All Victims of these children who are walking suicide bombs!
Yes I cry for all of these children – the Children of Africa and Iraq
And the unfed HIV/AIDS orphans who have fallen through the cracks!

HIV AIDS, suicide bombers, starvation, and tropical disease
Are killing lots of children and what are we doing about these?
Let us help the sisters of Charity – the Mother Teresa Nuns
And let us help the NGOs who work beneath the guns!

Those brave Doctors and their Nurses who are working in Darfur
Surrounded by the Janjaweeb who continue to make war
Let’s try to help the NGOs of Africa, AND in Iraq and Afghanistan
Let’s continue to weep for these victims of man’s inhumanity to man!
