We've got blacks and whites

and arabs and jews still fighting

and those muslim brothers are

They've got soup kitchens in LA

and red cross parcels in Bombay

about the brew queue, there won't be any

broth left on mushroom cloud day.

If you are able to take part you can log on to their website at:
