If all else is lost, there's always hope

The hairy body, the giant nose
the chinese sees, and bellows
"white man come, white man take,
all destroyed, in his wake".

The tanned skin, the turbaned head,
the white man sees, and screams with dread,
"there come chaps, with bombs and guns,
to kill us all and all our sons"

The squinty eyes, the dotty snouts,
the other sees, and with anger shouts
"they've sold their goods, they've sold their souls,
all's gone, we are left with holes"

Madness and fear, left us all
with lots to despair, behind a wall.
Leave your crazy, timid stare
let's start afresh with love and care

(Inspired by John Lennon's Imagine - which says all that I could ever dream/imagine to say :) )
