Gary Corseri: From the droned villages of Pakistan and Afghanistan--Bring back our girls! From Nigeria, and the brothels of the Philippines--Bring back our girls!

From the droned villages of Pakistan and Afghanistan--
Bring back our girls!

Bring Back Our Girls

From Nigeria, and the brothels of the Philippines--
Bring back our girls!

From the ruined cities of Detroit and Newark
And the ravished American Dream--
Bring back our girls!

From "Disaster Capitalism" and mindless, twerking mannequins--
Bring back our girls!

From the "Occupied Territories" of Palestine
And from Israeli Porn Kings--
Bring back our girls!

From the "royal" slave-holders of Arabia,
And the crapulous monarchs of Britain--
Bring back our girls!

Recommended for You

From our culture of destitution and prostitution--
Bring back our girls!

From "entrepreneurs" and exploiters
Of sex and violence and from those who confound and abuse--
Bring back our girls!

Restore them to their birthright dignity:
Co-creators; mothers; sisters; daughters; friends.
Bring back our girls

From the wars that have butchered them
(Restore them!);

From the silence that has answered their prayers
(Answer now...);

From the callous hypocrisy
Of scoffed-at dreams and snuffed-out hopes--
Bring back our girls!
