Let them come

by joetwo

Let them come

Let them walk all over us

Let them ground us into the dirt

Let them build on our forests

Plant in our pastures

Drive out all that we gold dear

Let them take what they want

Let them destroy us

And all that is important

In a mindless orgy of destruction

Let them come

For when they are finished

And all that was good in the world has disappeared

Let them contemplate what they have done

Let them pine for the lost beauty of the world

Let them live a long time

In the empty world they have created

Knowing full well what they have lost

Let them be forever shamed.
