Someday if bloody wars should ever come to you
You will realize, what other people went through
You could see your homes reduced to smoking rubble
You will ask, if still alive: “Who created this hellish trouble?”

Your “leaders” of course, could be the answer
They bombed other countries and created disasters
Now it’s your turn to feel the anguish and pain
You can “thank” your “leaders,” are they totally insane?

Where will you run to, if this should come to pass?
Will you be wandering like refugees, forced to eat grass?
You did not speak out as your rulers set countries on fire
Will you now start complaining, when your state is dire?

There is an old saying, “you reap what you sow”
Could your turn be coming, do you not know?
There is a price to be paid for creating slaughter and death
People out there know: They have no countries left

Let’s hope you never have to hear your children cry
As hellfire missiles rain down, from assassins in the sky
Let’s hope your country escapes terrible devastation
That your warmongering “leaders” imposed on a number of nations

What if your “peaceful country” receives the same as it gives?
Now you know how other people die, or “lives”
“What goes around, comes around,” or so they say
Will you be a helpless victim yourself: Someday?

“You cannot go out and bomb people and not expect that the survivors aren’t going to retaliate. And one of the ways people retaliate against powerful armies is by initiating terrorist strikes against their citizens.” Jacob G. Hornberger, September 17, 2014.
