Egypt Again

Can we rebuild the broken hearts

The shattered dreams

Bodies torn by bombs

Will the elders rest in peace

The children learn to play

Parents laugh again


Where is the promised land

Struggling to be born

Where Christians Muslims Jews

Pagans atheists and Sikhs

Pray and work

Live and play

Together in the sun


Freedom is so fragile

Faith a faint whisper in the night

As burning churches

Mosques and towns

Line the mighty Nile


Give pause my friends

A blessing waits

War is not the way

Tend the crops

And feed the babes

Build a pyramid of peace.

That is my prayer for you
