God help the Russian soldier

Asked to fight a war

In a foreign land

For a reason he does not understand

Against another soldier

Fighting for his home

Who’ll shed his blood its understood

For something in him grown


And one time diehard protestants

In Ulster’s fair land

Promoted British Union

And there took their stand

But now the times are changing

Ireland so changed too

Perhaps an Irish union

May happily come true


Herod in the old days

Played a deadly game

And autocrats like Stalin

In their time did the same

Life needs true consensus

Negotiated play

For brutal force means everyone

Will suffer in the day
