A Troubled Old World

A troubled old World the Human World of today
News of war and mass death by violence from lands far away
In war zones where many are maimed for life and many die young
Their remains in mass graves the forgotten unsung
So tragic is war and the great sorrow it does bring
The dark side of humanity can be an evil thing
So many due to war poor, stateless and hungry and living in fear
One can only hope that the years 2012 will be a more peaceful year
Than in the past decade of warring and terrorism and civil strife
Where war criminals showed no respect for human life
Lets hope the year 2012 less wars with it will bring
And of the praises of peace more people will sing
And that the friend of today was yesterday's foe
Is that asking a bit much one would not hope so.
