A Little Kindness

By | 19 May 2004

Let's please try not to be so barbaric.
If we must kill baby seals, cows or hogs,
let's just shoot them with tiny darts filled with
strong doses of the purest heroin.
                                                       If we must shoot humiliated children
                                          armed only with kamikaze belts
                           and pavement stones, let's do it with tiny darts
             full of a potion that makes them hungry
then open all the restaurants and offer steaks
carved from cows killed with wonder drugs.
And if we must bomb ancient cities such as
Belgrade let's do it with giant waterbombs
                      only after the advance uncover teams
             infiltrate the city and steal the towels.
