Death and destruction 
A cause for celebration 
Finally, they strike back

This is pride, they say
To be part of a nation baying for blood 

The cheers grow louder 
Plastered across our screens
Finally, they strike back

Show your solidarity, they say   Else you support the enemy 

Compassion is caste aside 
Chest sizes expand 
Finally, they strike back 

A surgery was needed, they say 
But the illness is eternal.
