Eco Warriors

“Fighting vehicles and artillery
can harm the environment
and pose a risk to people.”

Well blow me!
Almost sixty
And I’d never thought of that.

Such a simple idea you see, it
Would never occur to the likes of you and me.
Scientists can now make weapons green,
Extract the lethal lead,
Reassemble the pieces and it is said,
Convert explosives into shit.

So remember, if you’re capable,
When it takes your brother’s head clean off,
That insensitive shell
Was completely biodegradable.

Report in the Sunday Times yesterday reveals that BAE
Systems, one of the world’s biggest arms manufacturers
and dealers is developing ‘green’ weapons! The quote is from the Ministry of Defence.
