Excerpt :

A strange man came With a message

But His message was full of hatred

Even though he talked about love

His message was full of violence

Even though he talked about peace

His message was full of destruction

Even though he talked about construction

He came to this land and spoke about giving

Although all he did was taking

He came to this land and talked about happiness

Although all we had seen was sadness
