SEIGE OF SARAJEVO - 1992-96
The dark has brought them to a winter night
they' ve made themselves, forgetting what is right,
though they can see their children cry
there's not a one who'll reason why,
nor think upon enough to see the light.
There's no repent for killing going on,
and no resistance when the dead are gone.
just hate on hate that only grows,
the hint of peace that never shows,
with lots of blame, enough for everyone.
There's not one hero before dies are cast
until all reason's buried in the past.
and truth is what a baby hears
but put to rest for later years,
and right is not defined until the last.
