Army Mom’s Safe Haven

Jesus  Allah  Buddah


When Mother Earth is weary
And Father Time is teary
And every mother's son
has gone to War,

will Buddha then be happy?
Is Allah satisfied?
Does Christ want sacrificial
soldiers who have shed their blood
and died?

When Mother Earth is weary
and Father Time is teary,
I think Jesus, Allah, Buddha wonder
yet again:

What for?
