Bombs, The Bombed & Bombing

 

There’s something I don’t get:

Admittedly without the facts at finger’s tip,

Bombs, planes, rockets, earth land mined –

Underhanded, well designed…

Would it not reduce blood’s shed

If weapons plants were bombed instead?

At least, the exhibitions:

Fancy goods mildly displayed;

Luscious females sequin swathed;

Would the killing not be cropped –

Not stopped – you can’t stop devil-ry

Spawned from creativity –

If men of arms were blown away?

Am I naïve and uninformed,

Wet behind the ears, born yesterday,

Or just

Unpatriotic?
