Sticks or Guns?
Animals are Spreading
Vegetations shrinking
Deserts are swelling
Nomads slaughtering
Humans are wailing
Running around screaming
The Nation is sinking
Politicians are sailing
Nothing, they are saying
Our faith, broken
Sticks wielding men trespassing
Oh! It’s a raging rifle
Cattle they should be rearing
But lives, they’re slaying
All I am saying;
Is stop the wasting…
