Liban... un martyr (II)

Est il destiné que le Liban

reste à jamais le martyr des temps

Est il permis qu'à chaque instant

la paix disparaisse sous le vent

Est il possible qu'après ces ans

qu'on confond saint et tyran…

Est il tard pour que l'ère des clans

des massacres, des rivières de sang

des esprits morts et malfaisants

annonce sa défaite visant

un pays prospère et veillant

sur sa peuple qui en dépend???

… Si Seulement on s'entent !!!!
