Secretary General of the U.N. asked Iran
If they'd like to join the talks on Syria's peace plan.
It was an acknowledgement that this won't be resolved
If the plan does not get the Iranians involved.
They already are involved; they're in up to their necks
And the fact they won't be present at the peace talks wrecks
Any chance that Russia or the Chinese will agree
To a plan the U.S. backs, I fear... You wait and see.
Meanwhile, as we bicker over who should play a role,
Ever more civilians join the staggering death toll.
Shouldn't have to be a precondition - even so -
There's not any question that Assad has got to go.
