Are they coming

 Our hopes and anticipation
 Rise when we see
 The trucks and helicopters from United Nations
 Approaching our village that is merry
 Tonight we will sleep on full bellies
 The elders rush to the gate
 We rush to our huts
 To get our sacks

 But the elders meet us with despair
 On their faces and our excitement changes
 To gloom and hope the heavens may
 Smile and save us today
