As guns are sold

My  early birth   meant I was at the breast
When Hitler died and left a world depressed
Since then we’ve had Korea,over-run
Palestine and Laos  Oh Saigon!

We seem to feel we’re  still the very best
Christians are most peaceful, what a jest
From early martyrs killed by Romans in their games
We reversed the process, now it’s we who maim

When did Jesus say he wanted Gold?
When Cathedrals, when portfolios sold?
Why his image on the Flags of War?
Why no love of others, nor their care

At heart we’re carnivores uncontrolled
We wear our masks of love, as guns are sold
