Canned Men


JMM speaks of them
as 'canned men':
those 'knights in
shining armor'.
May we call
them 'canned
animals': those
slain beings
in canned Armour*
The first group
victimized by
warmongers..
the second by
profiteers..
Neither group
was harmed
by those with
perceptible amour.

Whate'er we leave to God, God does,
And blesses us;
The work we choose should be our own,
God leaves alone.
