Always the Children

The children. Always the children. How come
Whenever the elite class wants something
It’s always the children who die? They’ve done
It again. Evil from the sky, he’ll bring

A culture to its knees to make a point,
To render imagined enemies down.
To justify the monstrous act, anoint
Himself the messenger of God. The crown

Of his kingdom is cover for this act
Of  of evil intent, of genocide. And
Once again history marks the fact
That children die by one despotic hand.

The evil that men do steps to the front,
But always do the children bear the brunt.
