They Slept in Peace

War and slaughter disturbed them not
For over thousands of years
As nation after nation invaded
With guns, and swords and spears

Through famines they were not disturbed
When they were it was not from need
Or conflict, or natural disaster
No, but from mankind’s selfish greed.

Now ask debris, they’ll be swept away
As are swept to one side wishes of the living
But there will come a Judgement on a Day
It will be unforgiving

God as we know him will declare
That those who desecrated
Shall punished be for their folly
Destroying what he created!

Have your say...
