How We Got Peace At Last

How We Got Peace At Last

Three hundred angels sang Hallelujah
While the birds ate porridge.
Never have I seen such a songfest
Said the King to the Queen.
Put a humble blackbird first
And we shall have plums
Said the Prince.

Chaos reigned among the land
In the US-Libya decision room.
Send planes missiles bombs
The priest cried.

And sure enough,
Just like that
Planes soared!
Missiles slammed buildings!
Bombs exploded bridges and heads!
And chaos reigned among the land
And here at home as well
Here at home as well.
