A Little Quiz

 

If you could sell a thing for lots,

Finance your yachts;

Would you boycott?

If what you sold

Could finance wars,

Could bring worlds

To their burned-out knees,

Would you do business?

 

If you could earn a salary

By working in a factory

Producing weapon’s heads,

Guns, poison gas –

All granted by the local laws,

Would you do business?

 

A little quiz – a little Buddhist –

Prompted by

The sheer potentiality

Of personalities and crime TV

Regarded daily.

Hypothesize:

Your kids are hungry.
