Across the Pond - Syria; "We're Gonna Need a Bigger Boat."

Wish that I could say Assad has gone too far this time
And that he'll be punished for his latest, deadly crime.
Wish that little bodies were not lined up in the streets;
Shot or blown up babies hidden underneath those sheets.

True that Russia just condemned the massacre and yet,
Will they back that up with sanctions aimed at Assad? Nyet.
Everyone agrees that killing children isn't good
Even if they're living in a rebel neighborhood...

Saying only that and nothing more is not enough
But, without the full U.N., all we can do is bluff.
War's now spread to Lebanon as ethnic tensions flared;
Can't imagine other nearby nations will be spared.

Diplomats say Kofi Annan's plan is all there is.
I don't mean to tell the U.N. delegates their biz;
But, Assad's a killer shark.  The next  time that they vote
Hope they'll reconsider - think we'll need a bigger boat.
