should’ve thought about that…

first i thought
those missiles
fired at libya
could’ve fed
a lot of folks
each one
could’ve fed
ten families for a year
but then
i realized that i
had failed to consider
the obvious
missiles don’t last
heaven knows
we shouldn’t waste them
that’d be a sin
and i
failed to consider
the training value
of learning to strike
military targets
no use having
fancy equipment
if no one knows
how to use it
i certainly failed
to consider
all the jobs
that would be created
to replace those missiles
so needed for our protection
i must have been mad
to think
feeding children
was more important
