Rows and rows of headstones
A sight we’ve seen before
And beyond them the eye can see
Rows and rows more…
The dead of Srebrenica
Victims of a war crime
Their remains we look at today
And wonder who and who by next time?

Before it was Germans and Croatians
And Bosnians and Kosovars too
And the victims was the Serbs
And the gypsies and the Jew
And before them it was the others
And back and back until
Each side finds a reason why
The other they have a reason to kill.

What is it about humanity
To kill each other we yearn
The horrificness of history
Does not seem to make us learn
The only one people who suffers most
And desires for revenge not
Are maybe Gods only people left
The gypsy that the world has forgot.

Have your say...
