Five Hundred eyes watched some with tears

/

Three days of charcoal for the end

/

Prayers heard by all five hundred ears

/

Five Hundred eyes watched some with tears

/

Fervent pastors harangue with fears

/

Near huts did the body descend

/

Five Hundred eyes watched some with tears

/

Three days of charcoal for the end

Five Hundred eyes watched some with tears

/

Three days of charcoal for the end

/

Casket flowers blown by our chairs

/

Five Hundred eyes watched some with fears

/

Twenty came to Christ without spears

/

Many stated Kelly did ascend

/

Five Hundred eyes watched some with tears

/

Three days of charcoal for the end

Five Hundred eyes watched some with tears

Three days of charcoal for the end

/

Poor little boy of so few years

/

Five Hundred eyes watched some with tears

/

Women watched from mats men from chairs

/

Rain clouds waited for the last amen

/

Five Hundred eyes watched some with tears

/

Three days of charcoal for the end

Boda Boda out races the breeze

Wired Walls show where you may not go

Gentle melody comes from trees

Boda Boda out races the breeze

/

Dancing bodies form human seas

Forgive me for I must say no

Red flowers weep on

Sons, fathers, brothers fallen

Across worlds of blood

/

Concord to Nepal 

Join daughters, mothers, sisters

Red flowers weep on 

/

Toasts to absent friends

Temporary solace left us

Red flowers weep on

/

Words fail to fill hearts

Pillows wet with sorrows tears

Red flowers weep on

/

Red flowers weep on

Grounds with blossom life salutes

Stone remembrances

Zulu Hours

A monster dies

City raped

Fires burn on

Savage Armies plunder on

NordstrasBe rampage

Hunger grows inside
Appetites unappeased
Passionate famine
