Each Drop

Each drop of blood
That spills out
On the streets
Of the cities
Of Iraq

Is our blood

Each precious drop
Of living blood
That spills out
Of the body
Of Iraq

Is our blood

Each drying drop
That lays out
In the burning
Desert sun
Of Iraq

Is our blood

Each pulsing drop
That runs down
Into the gutters
And rivers
Of Iraq

Is our blood

Each scarlet drop
That places a stain
On the face
Of a child
Of Iraq

Is our future

And our future

Is bloody
