The Village Where Nothing Happened 

Lyrics of a  Song I used to listen to about B52 carpet bombings on a Village in Afghanistan “Kama Ado”, very much related to whats happening now in Syria, how they bomb any civilian places, markets & Hospitals, and then come on the Media saying “Nothing happened”

—————
“The Village Where Nothing Happened”
The Army commander spooke to the media

He said, “This is a nation of laws

“We do not target civilians

“And we only bomb with cause”

And he said as he looked into the camera

With a cold, bone-chilling stare

“As for the village of Kama Ado

“Nothing happened there”
In the village where nothing happened

Most people had risen from bed

Women were preparing to cook

And make sure every mouth would be fed

Just before the beginning of Ramadan

Water was set out to boil

Little fires were heating tin kettles

Upon the dry Afghan soil
In the village where nothing happened

Children played in the street

Men were bending in prayer

Some with no shoes on their feet

It was another day like so many

That had gone down before

And nobody told Kama Ado

Just what lay in store
In the village where nothing happened

Nobody knew

That this place would be changed forever

By an American B-52

The bombs fell all around them

So many a deafening blast

And the people of Kama Ado

Learned that life can end so fast
In the village where nothing happened

The houses collapsed in the morn

Not one terrorist died there

But maybe some were born

In the village of Kama Ado

There are no underground caves

There’s just rubble and dust and craters

And 115 new graves.
