Western Leaders Make it Plain

There is a puzzling anomaly
that is shrouded in infamy;
it assaults my sensibility
and mocks my ability
to understand its mystery.

When Gadaffi’s people are slain,
and the same happens in Bahrain,
Western leaders make it plain
they are even handed with the twain;
but they have a friend in Bahrain.

When Israel the UN resolutions defy
and Palestinian rights it openly deny
Western leaders make it plain:
ours is not to reason why,
but to let the Palestinians die.

Crime is in the eye of the beholder.
Western leaders make it plain
their vision is much clearer;
they have friends in Israel and Bahrain;
so there’s no need to go to Specs-Saver.
