2013.10.30 The Endless Conundrums by magicjackatx ©

the endless conundrums
war fends off enemies and intruders
war offers opportunities for booty
to the victor goes the spoils
weapons cost treasure
corporations are enriched
people need jobs and incomes
resources are exploited
we burn fossil fuels
we burn though money
we burn cities and buildings
we end thousands of lives
we worry about trees
we fret over McNuggets
we let war mongers charge wars
on credit cards
meanwhile the sun shines
energy comes down from the sky
winds blow free
windmills are turning
children are going without food
hunger overseas and in our own schools
the rich have more wealth than all kings
history awaits us to revisit 
the future we envision
we argue on Facebook
