The Mediterranean we Loved*
 
 

We killed you, yet, we claim to love you

No funeral, no grief, no pain

But your virgin beauty shall remain

In our hope that your life will return

Like a sunshine in the rain

They slaughtered the goose,

In quest for the yellow juice

We destroyed the reef

In quest for famine relief

They wanted the gold,

We needed to grow old

They wanted to thrive

We needed to survive

Diving in the sparkling blue

Like a mermaid would slew

Nevertheless, we killed you,

Yet, we claim to love you

Quietly died without a complain

For greed or just inane

Our hope that your life will return

Like a sunshine in the rain
