The children die

The children die to save the leaders pride
He can’t accept his people’s right to choose
Reality is easily denied
The children die

With all the forces he is free to use
How could he finish on the losing side
There’s always someone else he can accuse

He just repeats that all the rest have lied
His actions hardly even make the news
How long will he be left alone to hide
The children die
