With a big bang of an uproar
Your hit, think tank is so flawed.
Trails of blood your tanks draw
Bulldozing homes & what's more.
Indiscriminate your evil is so raw.
You're irrational & above the law.
Armies of vanity soldiers against units of family members,
scores of enemy poachers against basis of unity centres,
tearing apart family foundations, destroying afar living generations.
I appease myself knowing you don't pick and choose,
taking away everyone on path that one let loose,
What's a world's worth of destructive tools?
If you ain't charred by the blast,
you're tattooed by emotional scars.
If the war did not tear you apart,
the aftermath will part you at last.
Safe haven by those who flee,
Fake heaven for those who plea,
Asylum, refuge seeking to be free.
There are other accomplices as you stand by,
watching the death of innocent passers-by.
Their spirits gone with the wind - bye bye.
This - is just a welcome to another war!
