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.
