Flames Of Shame Shooting In Our Night

Flames of shame shooting in our night

Auschwitz chimneys in memory

Bosnia-Hercergovina now

Ethnic cleansing misery again

The world just watching petrified

In fear of its own shame and lack

Of courage its cowardliness again

As the smoke wisps out again from death

As factories of murder fly again

Humanity is dead again again
