Hush

Hush, little baby,
Don't say a word.
All your cries were pointless.
Nobody even heard.

Hush, little baby,
Shed no more tears.
There's no need to waste them
On silly little fears.

Hush, little baby,
Time now to sleep.
Maybe in the morning
You'll find no need to weep.

Hush now, my darling,
Make not a sound.
Though everything you love
Has burned to the ground.
