A wish and a prayer

A wish and a prayer

It ends in despair

The sadness laid bare

For all

 

With George Bush you prayed

The world you betrayed

Those mem’ries won’t fade

For me

 

You wished for success

Make history, no less

But oh, what a mess

You made

 

You believed what you read,

What the wrong people said,

Now thousands are dead,

For what?

 

No planning, no thought

Disaster you brought

And chaos you wrought

On us all

 

‘Twas just for your pride

That so many died

While you merely sighed

No more

 

A wish and a prayer

So how can you dare

To pretend that you care

At all?
