Abandoned People of Afghanistan
Abandoned people of Afghanistan -
what can most people do? What can we say
since after all these years when war began.
Your liberty has now been yanked away.
In shock the world looks on with fear for you,
abandoned people of Afghanistan.
Though some escaped, the number is too few
of those who heard the news and quickly ran.
You’re left now to the wrath of Taliban.
Your instant plight is sadly all too real.
Abandoned people of Afghanistan,
what horror and betryal you must feel.
For those pursued by ugly brutal men,
injustice has you in its grip. What can
we do but pray while you’re in the lion’s den?
Abandoned people of Afghanistan!
