A song written ten years ago, which makes more than a few salient points about today's situation.

Kurdistan

Words and Music by Pete Morton

Kurdistan, Kurdistan
Let me tell you about Disneyland
We're the countries free to choose
We decide if you win or lose.

We decide what's right when the dealing's done
If it's worth our while when the money's owed
Besides, Jesus came and he took our sins
To keep our cars upon the road

Kurdistan, Kurdistan
We drew a line in the desert sand
We never came to your defense
'Cause Saddam was not a bad man then

We sold him guns and we sold him tanks
'Cause our lives are worth their weight in gold
Besides, Jesus came and he took our sins
To keep our cars upon the road

Kurdistan, Kurdistan
I was going to tell you about Disneyland
But it's too late now. You're dead and you're bust
You've been smashed, you've been gased by the chemical dust

We'd have liked to have helped but we're all messed up
But this is a world that's bought and sold
Besides, Jesus came and he took our sins
To keep our cars upon the road

wonderful song and wonderful singer. He has a new song which will be on his next cd, about tw brothers where he imagines Israel and Palestine as two little boys fighting- it is wonderful. The cd is a long time coming but am sure it will be worth it.

I thoroughly agree. "Two Brothers" is probably my favourite Pete Morton song of all. "Listening to the Sound of my Boots" is another great song too. It's on the same theme as "Hunting the Heart", only with a driving rhythm. Pete was joking, "I got it down to six verses this time!"
