Bear Witness Little Orphan

 

It is reflected in your eyes

My very beautiful little orphan

A wonderful green colored tank

What a shame that you can’t see it

Because for too long you are blind


His barrel takes aim at your head

My very beautiful little orphan

Like the sting of an iron scorpion

Ready to shoot a cannonball

It is his deadly poison


A dark deep menacing sound

My very beautiful little orphan

Bores itself into the deep black night

You will not hear it

Because for too long you are deaf


You scream without any tone

My very beautiful little orphan

Feels abandoned by society

No sound will ever leave your lips

For too long you have been dumb


But don’t moan about anything

My very beautiful little orphan

Not that you can’t get the war

Nor that you can’t see the atrocities of it

You are the most beautiful horrible reflection

My very poor little orphan.
