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
