Sadness beyond sadness, enough to break your heart,
Massacre after massacre and thatís just how they start,
Where the body count is meaningless as the world looks on,
And African Union troops are either missing or gone.
Places there in Africa where they must be out to lunch,
How else could you explain that homicidal bunch?
Terror, warlords, AIDS, famine, death and destruction,
Colonialism at its worst never had this construction.
The madness of Mogadishu in a tropical storm,
Failed state where intimidation is the norm,
Abduction, slaughter, rape and assassination,
And this is accepted as a normal UN nation.
International left-wing socialists telling us to go,
To Darfur with armed soldiers and bring lots of dough,
Because African Union soldiers donít seem to know how,
And as an afterthought; get out of Afghanistan now.
