Drone defenders try to point out the benefits

  Delivery of medicines, supplies, reconnaissance

     While a trail of tears follows a distant drone

        Having killed nine others besides the target

 

If we are to choose between life and death

   An operator at Whiteman AFB shouldn’t

       Make that choice… it’s a violent war crime

         NukeWatch documents over 50 killing events

 

If we are to choose peace, how do we decide?

   Most choose peace with strength, imposing

       From a place of control, using force and order

          But real peace becomes meditative or mediating

 

We need to calm the chaos in a sea of abnormality

   Find the quiet places or mediate the opposite sides

      Restore the normal in a society of democracy

         Start raising kind humans and stop the madness.
