Lest we forget
Lest we forget the heartfelt pain
Of needless death for pointless gain.
We should be closer to the gore
To see what horrors lie in store
For victims of this terror game.
Rockets are fired at far terrain
And bombs are dropped from a plane;
People aren’t people any more.
Lest we forget.
The leaders would do it all again
They love to clap the band’s refrain.
It’s been truly said, oft before,
There are no winners in a war.
Except, of course, on the gravy train.
Lest we forget.
