Massacres in Mosques, Churches, Schools, and countries too
Massacres in Iraq, Libya, Syria, Yemen, Afghanistan, Nigeria, Gaza
And many other places too
Violence is everywhere in lands around the world
And the innocents are dying and millions are killed

World leaders speak of sympathy, for victims, and love and prayers too
While sending their armies to kill, because that’s what armies do
Hypocrisy is rampant in the seats and halls of power
Where war criminals reside and violence does flower

They sell arms to dictators and despots, and say they are creating jobs
Aided and abetted by corporate cannibals and profiteering mobs
Children are massacred in a school bus in Yemen
The missiles manufactured in a corporate “free enterprise” haven

Killing, and bombing, and death rains down from the skies
Bringing “democracy” and “responsibility to protect” is their lies
Massacres and more massacres, waiting in the wings
And another maniac and monster will have a hellish fling

Violence breeds violence and that saying is true
So what can be done, does anyone have a clue?
Lawmakers become lawbreakers in illegal wars
Do their victims and their families have any recourse?

Weeping and suffering are those left alive
Filled with sorrow and trying to survive
Victims of evil and deranged killers
And the slaughtering continues with more massacres
