When a 15 year old McAllen middle school student
was fatally shot by police under orders,he was found
to be carrying only a pellet pistol(non-lethal toy)
and only caffeine and chocolate in his system
When John Dixon-Jenkins was imprisoned for life
for carrying sticks and wires he said was a bomb
(it was only sticks and wires)-but he is still imprisoned
It was the apprehension of workers that condemned him
afraid(like school staff)of imaginary bombs
There are real nuclear weapons.Israel has them
We have used them.Iran has not the capacity to make them,
nor does he carry a lethal capacity.Medicine and electricity
Clinton bombed an aspirin factory saying it was a weapon site
There were no "weapons of mass destruction"found in Iraq
Blood and treasure are being wasted again on imaginary foes
when the real killers are under our wings
