The Fields of Vojvodina

The fields of Vojvodina are as flat as the world is round
A fairer land bar Ireland is rarer to be found…
By a tapestry of all the people of the area this land is blessed
And its borders by the blue Danube itself is caressed…

A tinderbox under bad leaders, waiting to explode
All peaceful now… but quickly can go the other road
Hopefully all will learn a lesson from the years before
And let the politics of hatred not make these lands land of bloodshed any more

Look with love to your brother, though your faith and tongue are not the same,
Look for the solution to the fault, not for someone to blame,
Too many have grieved for their lost, their dead…
My god guide you and keep you in these troubled times ahead.

Have your say...
