Remember Aleppo

As the streets of Aleppo burn

Our TV channels simply turn

To hide the guilt, to mask the fear

avoid what we don’t want to hear.

 

We sit by the fire, biscuit in hand

All oblivious to our fellow man.

Assad, Obama, Putin and Co

Playing games and nobody knows

The horror of war, the fear and terror

As we complain about the cold weather.

 

Children starving, children dying, can

You hear those children crying?

Dreaming of food, dreaming of survival,

Lying waiting on the next bomb’s arrival.

 

You may turn the channel, you can close your eyes

But the horror goes on and we still hear the cries.

As you prepare for Santa and presents galore

Remember Aleppo, as it’s burned to the floor.
