Children are not to blame
Children have no colour
Children have no religion
Children have no nationality
Children are neither Afghans nor Americans
Children are neither Muslims nor Jews
Children are neither Buddhists nor Christians
Children are just children
and they are innocent
Tell me, in what language do children weep
before dying on the road of war?
Do they cry in Hebrew or Lebanese, in Iraqi or American?
And what colour are children
blasted by rockets that fall on their homes?
Are they white or brown, are they yellow or black?
And what religion are children
before being burned by the bombs that rain down upon the earth?
Try to face up to it!
is always the same:
