How Come?

A little boy plays in his back yard
No one is there to hear him cry
He walks off in the distance for lack of attention
His mother beats him half to death for going too far
How come no one does anything?

They say the little boy was found in his father's ballon
Where was his mother?
Where was his father?
At the same time, who stands up for the young child?
How come no one claims to be responsible?

Obama wins the Nobel Peace Prize.
A time of cheer...
Or is this jealousy?
Shouldn't we ALL be happy?
We all should rejoice
How come half the world is angry with him?
How come no one can seem to answer these questions?
