Bad Dream In Disneyland

Sun-tan seekers stand in shock,
Killing time around the block,
Lying deadbeat on the sand:
Bad dream time at Disneyland.

Possessions in a plastic bag,
The time in Tyre seems to drag,
Life and limbs are contraband:
Bad dream time at Disneyland.

Mother, sister, brother, daughter,
All deprived of drinking water,
This man's had his head trepanned:
Bad dream time at Disneyland.

Flights and holidays delayed,
Terrible for tourist trade,
No-one left to lend a hand:
Bad dream time at Disneyland.

Kids must wait for Donald Duck,
No house, no home, no food, no luck,
Whole families smashed, I understand:
Bad dream time at Disneyland.

Sleeping Beauty's breath has stopped,
Must have been the bombs they dropped,
Like refugees, they steam and stream:
Disneyland, a bad, bad dream.
