Leaders of the Nation

Leaders of the nations

Send troops around the world

To fight and die in wars

That they themselves have caused

Leaving misery and sadness

A legacy of their madness

Leaders of the nations

Travel around the world

They show no contrition

That fuelled by their ambition

They sell weapons to each other

Designed to kill and maim

Leaders of the nations

Travel around the world

Talking of the need for peace

Whilst planning to wage war

The cost is paid in human lives

To pay for the Leaders pride

Leaders of the nations

Travel around the world

Touting their arms business

To kill each other’s citizens

It may seem so absurd

Perhaps they should stay at home

And protect their people first
