More Affordable - Poem by Eric Cockrell

which is more affordable,
more cost efficient?
to grow corn and potatoes,
or manufacture guns and ammo?
to make the medicine that heals,
or to invade other countries?
to build housing for the homeless,
or to prop up banks that fail?
to help addicts get clean,
or build more prisons?
to change the system,
or to watch it fall?
