Acrid smoke and tongues of flame
Rising from buildings I know by name
Crumbled walls of my city lying around
The too-still bodies of my people on the ground

Grey clouds of smoke choking the sky
I know Founders hate the solids, but why?
We took in their child -- we helped him develop
Now the Founder's fury our cities envelop

I don't know where my father is, my mother is dead
The thought of my sisters fills me with dread
I can't take my mind off them, I hope they're all right
But I haven't seen the rest of my family all night

This kind of destruction is just a part of war, they say
Still, I can never forget the things I've seen this day
I won't forgive the Dominion this time
They've attacked my home planet -- Cardassia Prime
