Where Lies the Peace

Where Lies the Peace
Form: Triversen

Another shooting in the Middle East
Yet tabloids focus on a footballer's affair
Where lies peace in this stormy world?
The fall of morality
For financial glory and power
Where lies the peace in this stormy world?
A child starving in a rain starved savannah
While fat-cat politicians argue a penny
Where lies the peace in this stormy world?
Domestic abuse leaves a wife dying
Hidden from stray shafts of sunlight
Where lies the peace in this stormy world?
Homelessness and poverty swept out of sight
Unwelcome in the streets of a newly built city
Where lies the peace in this stormy world?
Wasted words engraved on tombstones
As no-one cares to hear a desperate cry
Where lies peace in this stormy world?
