When We Give And Sell Nuclear Weapons - Poem by Hebert Logerie

When we give and sell destructive weapons to the thugs
To the mad dictators and to the corrupt politicians
All hell breaks loose, they no longer believe in kisses and hugs
And in handshakes, they become the criminals, magicians
Animals without a heart: they humiliate, torture, maim and kill.

When we pay too many taxes to some shady authorities
And to a money hungry administration who loves to steal
We end up with over inflated budgets, where thieves
Are managing and cooking the books with sheer arrogance
The poor become poorer and the rich are swimming in opulence.

When we rather select the wrong leaders in lieu of electing them
God in his Kingdom sheds tears, sobs, cries and yells: “God damn
Those mother rockers will never learn from their stupid mistakes
Because it is abominable to steal and to rob their own citizens
And it’s awful to kill, abuse, and cause to flee so many migrants”.

When we give and sell advanced nuclear weapons to the murderers
Sick psychopaths, dummies, zombies, mummies and the fakes
Which threaten to annihilate the world, and to poison flowers
Men, women and children, you and I must stand bravely for Peace
From the forests of Alaska to the bloody streets of the Middle East.
