‘PEACE’

Please help me !
I beg you,
They stole my eggs
I have nothing left to feed my son,
He is dying in his bed .

Peace!
They told her,
Don’t shout too loud !
Keep your voice down will you ?
Or You’ll threaten the peace of our land.

Please help me !
I beg you,
They are grabbing my farm,
I have nowhere else to go to,
Help me get back my land.

Peace!
They told him,
Don’t shout too loud !
Keep your voice down will you?
Or you’ll threaten the peace of our land.

Please help us!
We beg you,
Our father is already dead,
And now they’re killing our mother,
Do something we beg.

Peace !
They told them,
Don’t shout too loud !
Keep your voice down will you?
Or you’ll threaten the peace of our land.

What about Justice ?
They cried,
We need justice to prevail!
Yes, Peace is necessary,
But we must have justice as well.

What about Justice ?
They cried ,
Can’t we have it too ?
We need our voices heard,
Do they not matter to you ?

You ignore our cries,
And shove peace down our throats,
Why cry ‘PEACE!’ and ignore justice,
When it is possible to have both ?

    Kill a man but give him his rights
