By Mankh (Walter E. Harris III). Axis of Logic
Dear Lord, They Prey
Predator drones from predator nations
we'd be safer if they stuck to Playstations
"Reaper drone" aircraft a grim nomenclature
by those who are numb to the beings of nature
these lords of death are out for the kill
with citizen foot-soldiers footing the bill
Men stuck in a Darwinian paradigm
what's mine is mine and what's yours is mine
i know it's a big pharma pillage to swallow
but these unmanned drones are killing our tomorrows
in the name of the Lord these lords of death prey
but i pray that the Lord will keep them away
NATO signed $1.7 billion with Northrop Grumman
to keep their unarmed drone global surveillance hummin'
but these dunderheads and their gadgets have no vision
only sophisticated in the 'art' of division
the drone of a bee is far more appealing
or continuous chords with musical feeling
but predator drones from predator nations
leave innocents crying from amputations.
