Moslem shepherds steal ınto the strange caves wıth paintıngs
And scratch the eyes out and throw stones at the heads
of figures on the frescoes.
The Christians charge in
And carve crosses into the foreheads
Of fallen statues in the Roman ruins
Like somehow that will make up for
Whatever they did or didn't belıeve
A lot of us don't belıeve this
But they were all people just like you and me.
And ın some strange way
They were just all tryıng to save each other.
