Noel…In Hell!

Christmas is coming…politicians are getting fat…
While our soldiers in Afghanistan are getting bombed and shot at.

Christmas is coming…politicians are having a ball…
While our soldiers in Afghanistan continue to fall.

Christmas is coming…politicians are getting high…
While our soldiers in Afghanistan continue to die.

Christmas is coming…politicians raise good cheer…
While the loved ones of our soldiers wait for ‘The Knock’ with fear.

Christmas is coming…politicians stand another round…
While bodies of our soldiers are laid six feet underground.

Christmas is coming…politicians have a silent night…
While the loved ones of our soldiers reflect upon their plight.

Christmas is coming…to all good will and peace…
And a hope for all that soon to come…every war will finally cease.
