Guns and bombs, nukes and tanks
Mean lots of money in the bank
For KBR and Boeing too
Who foots the bill?
It’s me and you
Even if they replace tanks
Those for peace cannot give thanks
A company called ITT
Makes unmanned drones for you and me.
Every drone costs thirteen mil
A “safer way” they say, to kill!
Americans, not in harm’s way
But Pakistanis die each day.
Drones over Afghanistan
Kill many women, kids, and men
Controlled from half a world away
They stalk people at work and play.
Thirteen million dollars, wow!
We could use that dough right now
For teachers here and nurses there
And for green jobs everywhere.
