The Bomb App

Bombs are “smart “

They only target foreign skin


I’m sure it will break just a few limbs

And not see an apartment cave in


It will whistle past the Russians,

Saying hi along the way

Give reverence to the Iranians

“Get out of my way “


Bombs are “smart”

They only pinpoint the “exact foreign skin “


But when the families are laid out on a cold hard floor

The breath of life beating no more


Well


“We will have to do better next time

Start those fighter planes”

Let it begin

Again

And again

And again

And again
