Freedom hard earned


But were any lessons learned


From that huge cost


Of those millions of lives carelessly lost.


 


One hundred years on 


In a more enlightened age


New leaders still


Strut the world stage


Screaming for 


Their version of right


Knowing full well


They wont personally have to fight


And religious fanatics


Burn and pillage and kill


In the cause of imposing


Their benevolent god's will


And millions starve


In a world of plenty


And the whole world seems


To thrive on hate and enmity


While 


The profit motive rules


And business


Regards the rest as tools


Whether through ignorance


Or by just blind choice


There seem no liking for


Reason's lonely voice.


 


Freedom hard earned


But it seems few lessons learned


From that huge cost 


Of those millions of lives carelessly lost.
