Gun Money

Military Industrial
busy busy boys
Complex yet simple
very big toys
prima facie reason
bald faced lie
peace is treason
buy buy buy
funding war
and bombs galore
not another trip to the grocery store
D o D
why oh why?
why can’t we diversify?
space-based missiles, tanks, and planes
components of the same refrains
if the goals are defense and protecting us
we’ve paid our tolls so let’s discuss
new levees, and schools, a bridge or two
we understand that’s not what you do
with all the billions we give to you
but if you could spare a few
pennies for more pedestrian places
rather than funding political races
we might solve the real problems that face us
