Mark C. Nuccio

HOW WAR PROFITEERS SPEND TIME IN HELL

There’s an eternity of time to spend

In the war profiteers pit of hell.

The question is how do you measure it?

There is no hourly bell.

They’ll count all the tanks and jets they sold

That bombed hospitals and schools.

And add up all the soldiers that died

When they made the military look cool.

They’ll weigh the tons of gun powder

They stuffed into billions of shells

And untold yards of red, white and blue

For the flags draped on soldiers body bags.

They’ll walk forever on bombed roads
