The ending of the day brings nearer war
Is it France or Germany this time
As on those cruel days we lived before?
Alas it is the Holy Land adored,
No longer holy, no more thought divine
The ending of the day brings hints of war
David with his sling has nuclear power.
If this is true, how shall we read the signs
As did humans dead and gone before?
Asia,Europe.Africa, oh cower
The missiles and the war planes unbenign
The ending of our world draws near in war
The eyes seem innocent the mouth turns sour
World leaders who have never fought decide
Not to learn from long wars fought before.
Oh, why so keen to start, illegal bride?
Submit to your own prophets and their signs
The still small voice did whisper long ago
The sacred bush will burn with nuclear fire
