Drones of Love

By dlindorff - Posted on 27 June 2012


By Gary Lindorff


Let us bomb your neighborhood,

Let us target your neighbor

Out of our love and concern –


Not you, not your children.

Drones of love!


Won’t you love us

After the dust settles?

After the evil has been exploded?

After the crater in the market-place

Has been filled in and paved

We will explode our way into your hearts!


We might miss our intended target;

Our drones of love are no more accurate

Than our drones of hate.

We promise to work on that.


We will ask for your forgiveness.

We will say, But this is war!


We have loads of soothing words,

Trucks full of medical supplies.

Water and food.

We have specialists to rebuild your country.

We have big plans for your future.

We will even stay to make sure 

That evil doesn’t return.


Drones of love are just the beginning.

Just the beginning.
