"Tries to heal without any drugs;

"Cover the missing feet and hands!

"It is too sad for our hearts to stand.

"Give us instead a cheerful smile

"So we may enjoy our war for a while.

"Bring the dead home by dark of night

"And hide them carefully from sight.

"We don't want to know how their families feel;

"We don't want to see that death is real.

"Let us not question who's to blame

"While we play our silly political games.

"We will rejoice as we did before

"While our children pay for our bloodless war."
