Bodies litter the beach on coloured towels

The air is full of noise

of cheer as people frolic and play

and the smell of the smoke and the cooking meat is strong

A dog runs back and forth, looking for its lost owner

The sun goes out for just a second

as another cloud passes overhead

People huddle under shelter

to hide from the sun

A ball flies back and forth between two people

as laughter echoes around

Children dive into the sea

to escape the heat of the blazing summer

And gulls swoop down

to pick at the littered remains of the day

The world can change so quickly

For now, have fun

and wish that tomorrow

will be just like today

Bodies litter the beach on bloodied ground

The air is full of noise

of fear as people run away

and the smell of the smoke and the charred flesh is strong

A dog runs back and forth, looking for its lost owner

The sun goes out for just a second

as another plane passes overhead

People huddle under shelter

to hide from the gun

Flies dart back and forth between two bodies

as screams echo around

Children dive into the sea

to escape the heat of the blazing flames

And crows swoop down

to pick at the littered remains of the day

The world can change so quickly

For now, we run

and wish that tomorrow

will be just like yesterday
