How Many Terrorists Did You Kill Today?

How many terrorists did you kill today?
Multiply that by how many orphans you created
Include those that you tore from a family
When your missiles blew up the mosque they prayed in

How many lives did you stoke the flames with?
In this war that you involve my name in
Launch first, ask pivotal questions, years later
As kids lay decaying in your shallow graves

If you throw enough violence, maybe they’ll die
Or further alienate the marginalised
Who feel misrepresented by western policies
Indoctrinated with extremist ideologies

When will we learn the bitterest of lessons?
That our murderous past has poisoned the present
We should be handing out bandages to the poor
Instead we inflict more wounds in a random war

How many terrorists did you kill today?
