    dotsNo Quarter by Necessity dots
    -------------------------------------------


    We can pray, by the misguided sanctity
    Of a well protected and well paid for
    Sense of superiority

    That the boots of our soldiers and policemen
    Never come kicking their way
    Into our safe and preserved security

    Pray indeed

    While we justify no quarter

    And diminish in every concept and belief
    The much vaunted saviour of Christianity
    And claim the murder of the innocent
    Maybe sad
    But necessary

    Jesus wept and is weeping still

    And if by flags and patriots
    And the all too ready placatory of wealth
    Should for one instance, bemoan its lot
    And toss the holy water of its brand new suit
    Just another slave
    But dressed more comfortably

    Evil by any other name
    Blood by any other colour
    And diminished in the eyes of any saviour
    To claim
    The murder of the innocent
    Sad
    But still
    Necessary

    And may you walk in your pristine pavements
    Ice cream cones
    And coca cola’s
    And never taste the dust of blood and defeat
    And feel yourself so scared to step out on the street
    Lest the terrorist invade your home
    Kill every single one of you
    In your deluded, imagined, persecution

    What sickness is rife
    To such a misbegotten pledge
    That once defended the freedom and liberty for all
    Now only seeks to protect itself

    And the old courageous heroes of old
    Who stood so tall
    Now made a mockery of

    Evil by any other colour
    Blood by any other name
    And diminished are we in the eyes of any saviour
    To claim
    The murder of the innocent
    Sad
    But still a necessity

    Pray that the boots of your soldiers and policemen
    Never come kicking their way
    Into your safe and preserved security
