Farewell To Arms




are stockpiled

for consumers


the market


justifiable cause

a stringent clause




on whom

to sell



are compelled

to instigate wars

in order

to clear the shelves

    Sadly it is just business for some.

      It’s about ‘jobs’. And profit. People must die for someone’s paycheck. I’m disgusted with humanity – but I think you’ve noticed by now.

  2. Trident. 6000 jobs, 150B. Steel plant. 15000 jobs, but too expensive to save. Figure that out.

      One is subject to open market competition, the other has only one customer who creates the market and is on the hook for the consequences incurred from ‘closing’ that market (world peace).

  3. Reminds me of this verse from Country Joe & The Fish ‘Fixin to Die Rag’ …

    Come on Wall Street, don’t be slow,
    Why man, this is war au-go-go
    There’s plenty good money to be made
    By supplying the Army with the tools of its trade,
    But just hope and pray that if they drop the bomb,
    They drop it on the Viet Cong.
