A tattered peace... in the Middle East
An Arab peace summit... as the region plummets
Another suicide bomber... succeeded in his mission
Retaliation is certain... from the Israelis' curtain
...Indeed a perpetual war, where tomorrow becomes more
No cease-fire... no living together
A situation destined to fuel devastation
World stability at risk...
Resolution, world leaders seek brisk
A war with no end... solutions pretend
A peace that never was...
Hatred cling like a still stone gathering moss
Somewhere, some mothers to be in labor...
Future soldiers wait
Perhaps one day a savior...
To save us all,
Before it's too late...
A tattered peace... a temporary feast
Finding common ground...
Hatred to defeat!
