Consider Poor Haiti Picture, Haiti National Palace Damaged, by Marco Dormino/ United Nations Development Program, licensed under the Creative Commons Attribution 2.0 Generic license.

Music and Lyrics by Ron Israel

Consider poor Haiti, she's got nothing to lose,
Hanging around, lost and confused.
Consider poor Haiti, what's she gonna do?
She's looking at me, like she's looking at you.

Consider poor Haiti, feeling left out.
Party time, she's not up and about.
Consider poor Haiti, she's one of us.
How come no worry, how come no fuss?

Consider poor Haiti, she ain't doing well,
But from up here it's hard to tell.
Beneath the radar, behind the train,
Consider poor Haiti, in so much pain.

Consider poor Haiti, she can't get her way.
No one is listening to what she has to say.
Neighbors ignore her, friends run and hide.
Who's gonna stay by Haiti's sweet side?
Who's gonna stay by Haiti's sweet side?

This is an original song by Ron Israel composed before the earthquake hit!
Message from Ron Israel: "Consider Poor Haiti is a song meant to draw attention to the need to embrace Haiti as part of our world family; that she is an often overlooked sister and brother whose people now greatly need our help and support."
