The Children ©

Written while watching the News on the War in Iraq.

Margaret Leith Minter
Victoria, BC, Canada
2003

Listen to the children,
they are calling;
they are crying;
Stop the hatred!
Stop the gunfire!
Stop the dying!

Look at all the children.
their eyes so full of sadness;
Stop the bullets!
Stop the bloodshed!
Stop the madness!

Think about the children,
their hearts so full of pain;
Stop the shelling!
Stop the terror!
Bring their childhood back again!
