acquisition cost…

resigned for personal reasons

1 million
malnourished children
dying
each year
and
although
45 dollars
could
provide
a full course
of
life-saving care
weapons
are bought
missiles
air to air infrared
a cool million apiece
and
arrays
of sexy rockets
like
surface to air
man-portables
at
bargain prices
of
38,000 dollars
per unit
oh
the rockets’ red glare
and
the bursting in air
of rifle rounds
fired
from calibers
most could
never
comprehend
nor count

the number
of shots fired
or
total price
not
quite
as cheap
as rice
but
choices
must
be made
supporting
life
or
war
