Letter to a war belligerent

I can apprehend your thirst for annihilation Your appetite to proliferate terror To gratify your alter ego To guarantee your supremacy To drop bombs on beings above suspicion To burn their unique meager crops To demolish their eggshell havens To confiscate their few vendibles To kill their licit long-planned dreams To haunt their minds To shred their long -conceived hopes To chain their legs and ears reverberate Yet if you should actually do Point your extortionate,sophisticated weapons To poverty,hunger,misery,illnesses,homelessness... For remember one of your trailblazing armored cars Could meet the needs of many wretched souls Chase angst from their forlorn,woeful profiles.
