No Foundry Like Yemen

(melting away like salt dissolved in water)
surrounded by infidels of every sect
bull and bombs raining down sand and sea
emaciated for opposing profits of war
now none dare come to their aid
millions crying and dying too young
our children in pictures, but only to die
and greenbacks and oil grease the pan
that cooks and serves this New World Order
