For The Victims Of Genocide In Bosnia

Ah, left outside

By those who claimed to love humanity

To be massacred


Left undefended before murderers

By those who speak this very day

Of moral principles


Argued over

By those who make some little gain or loss

In their political careers


People in Bosnia

Left to be murdered in deep misery

Cold blood and tears
