  • Rape of Nanking

    Ancient whispers among the skyDeclothed were the little childA contest to the very endingLeading to a war of lieMinds they travel the lonely roadBabies hide deep in the soilHeads lying in a straight rowA quarter hiding the unmistakable codeWill the rape never end?Their crying faces bow down to prayWill they ever haunt these grounds?Some things to sacred to mendCan you see the fear we hide?Hidden beneath the revenge we seekOur loved ones thrown to tentsSuffered women stand besideMy people in hundreds begin to fallTo the feet of those who kick the dirtSixteen years they die exposedNanking standing tallWe shall not fight:For we are thirsty for rainGrandfather we will forgiveWe might, we might.
