GOD DAMN THE ARMAMENTS MAN

Yes, you: the one who manufactures and

pushes weapons anywhere in the world,

served so well by servile governments:

God damn you

‘cos you’re the Pusher Man,

the Armaments Man,

the World of Warcraft for real.

Makes and hawks his wares as a mercenary

Because he’s sold his soul to the devil:

to the billions of dollars that line his pockets

when he sells

warplanes/attack helicopters/Hellfire missiles/flechette weapons/

armoured cars/nerve gas/

water cannon/rubber bullets/grenade launchers/grenades/

fragmentation grenades/gas grenades/assault rifles/

bunker-busting bombs/drones (long-distance murder)/

the list goes on of Pusher Man’s creative ingenuity to

kill/splatter apart/rip to shreds/annihilate

people:

mothers, fathers, grandparents, uncles, aunties,

nieces, nephews, grandchildren, boys, girls.

Do you feel proud of yourself, Pusher Man?

Have you ever thought of construction rather than destruction?

if you’d put your ingenuity, your creativity, your resourcefulness

to work to create:

jobs/education/health services/roads/schools/hospitals/

houses/renewable energy.

You’d be the hero, the one cheered on by those

benefiting by your service to society.

What a concept, eh?

Not killing. Serving.

Think about it, Armaments Man,

because we, the people, are coming right in  your face,

you’re in our sights:

occupying your murderous factories,

working on boycotts of your subsidiaries

which may not bear your name but we’ll

track you down  and bring you down,

not with your weapons of destruction and death,

but our weapons of boycotts, social media, naming and shaming,

disinvestment, starving you of funds and approval.

You’ll wither on the vine while the fruits of

peace flourish, expand and scatter roses for

future generations.

Armaments Pusher Man: your time is UP!
