It was almost nightfall when Jamira was picked up from daycare
She enjoyed these short walks
Played a game called Hey Look
As they strolled through the mellow autumn air

Turned a corner into their street
Hey look mum there’s the evening star
But it turned out to be a warplane
Approaching from afar

Don’t you worry sweetie
They’re not here to do us any harm
They just want to see if they can
But then we’d just go up to Uncle Massoud’s farm

Aiza whispered to herself
I wish they’d stop these provocations once and for all
Hey mum what does pro-co-vations mean
It’s like when someone takes away your rubber ball

But how can we tease them when they’re up in the sky
And we’re down here on the ground
Honey it’s the politicians either ours tease theirs
Or it’s the other way around

Hey look there’s a gecko sitting on the wall
Enjoying the last rays of sunlight
Let’s try and catch the cheeky fellow shall we
But one swift move and he was out of sight

That night when they watched the Simpsons
As they did every Tuesday
Her mum laughed a little bit louder
Than she normally did
