My, how the times have changed
Used to be the Christians had their Crusades
To invade and kill and profit in the name of God
But now it’s wrong for Muslims to think ‘Jihad.’
We say it’s barbaric and dangerous,
That God could never will us to hate so much,
And we ignore the echoes of the past
To pretend that the warnings will not last.
Don’t let differences cause hate and strife
Let us vie in righteousness and life.
Does it truly matter which one of us is right?
Yet we drag each other down into the darkest night.
Won’t you hear the plea for peace?
Let the senseless waste of life cease.
