Innocent Blood By Raymond A. Floss

That troubled land, torn and split
knowing war, strife, too long
Escape through there, to a land
once of oppression, now of refuge
Once of hope, now of struggle
back into that land, give and take
innocent blood shed; in the stories,
in the news, innocents in the cross-fire
forever under threat, ruthless, indiscriminate
rage and fury, power, authority, nations and people
land of the saints, of the martyrs, ancient, tribal
never finding peace, on earth
innocent blood, spilled,
crying out from the ground for God
