He's barely used to the smells of dead flesh
Shelling is part of his daily life
A vague souvenir of a dream of reconstruction
Keeps him clear until the fall of the next block.
But who cares ?
Just a li(n)e dropped in the morning news...
Middle East, loads of useless peace processes
To pretend to avoid the next conflicts
Symbolize the non-will of "politic traders"
To sacrifice any part of their interests.
But the wind took the ashes,
Hope's back with this brand new day.
They believed in an everlasting peace,
Hard to succeed, easy to say.
An illusion before the dawn,
Just the last before the storm.
No masterplan to avoid this tragedy,
Of countries and their betrayed promises.
Everyboday says : "Our lives are sacred"
But some dead civilians on the floor represent nothing more than :
1) According to a Tsaal soldier interviewed on the 30th of july 2006,
the day of Cana's slaughter in Lebannon, where a shelling's mistake caused about 50 deaths
including at least 37 children :
"UNFORTUNATE VICTIMS OF THEIR GOVERNMENT'S CHOICES"
2) For us, non concerned europeans : "a bunch of fallen pawns on a chessboard"
3) And for Ehud Olmert (Israel's prime minister) : a rebuke from Mrs Condoleeza Rice
