Where is the Peace?





Fire and destruction obliterate the scene
Illuminating the stage where the riots have been

The violence and chaos went on through the night
This wasn't intended this bloody great fight
What triggered the battle that raged on the street,
Causing peaceful protestors to withdraw and retreat?

Where did they come from, this unwanted party?
Who had created this powerful army?
Thugs hijacked the cause for their own pleasure
Enjoying creating the tension and pressure

The Police approached in a militant manner
No reason to believe the words on the banner
Billowing smoke belched into the sky
Leaving peaceful protestors wondering "Why?"

It was supposed to be a march opposing war
Peace on Earth was the message they bore
It's ironic to think it ignited a fight
We live in hope that a truce is in sight
