Who Changed the Name of Hell?

Patti McKenna, copyright 2010

A young boy stood

Near a makeshift grave

Under a corner street sign

Where his brother once laid.

Nobody knew who fired the shot

Nobody would tell

Who changed the name of hell

And called it the corner

Of Main Street and Elm

 

She was only six 

Her sister was three,

They were scared and all alone

They had no food to eat

If they knew where their mama was

They had no one to tell,

Who changed the name of hell

And called it The Projects,

Apartment 312?

 Chorus:

Barbie dolls and Matchbox cars

are where they’re supposed to be,

but their little souls got lost along the way

and wound up in misery.

Someone stole their innocence,

they’ve got no Robin Hood

Who changed the name of hell

and called it childhood?

Verse:

Halfway cross the world

In a foreign land

A young mother clung to

Her little boy’s hand.

Their tears fell on the rubble 

Where their home once stood.

Who changed the name of hell

And called it childhood?
