Editor's note: For optimal experience, try reading this piece out loud.
All these stats are just driving me crazy
But are they driving you crazy too?
‘Cause I don’t see it.
When these dying survivors are trying to tell their stories
To the stone-faced, unconcerned juries
But that’s only the few able to share
And once they do the prospect of doing it again is so rare
What about those who we’re shunned to hear from?
The news can overplay it, and so the case is simply done
Rape is so rampant, our feelings towards it become numb
There’s assaults and mass exploits but it’s a given when it comes to war
And does anyone ever talk about Darfur, Bosnia, the rape of Nanking, comfort women anymore?
It’s funny what we call survivors these days
“Comfort women.” Are they really comforting as military sex slaves?
