Peace Drone

This could happen now

But who would profit by such a thing?

~

A craft the size of a building, difficult but not impossible to destroy

Could land on or hover over the streets or fields

Of the peoples we peoples don’t want to be enemies with any more,

Not there to invade or destroy but to share and display.

A touch screen menu could offer assistance and choices

Help to find and channel water and other resources

Feed and regenerate the soil, plant and process food,

Build shelters, homes, hospitals and schools,

Roads and bridges, all manner of communications

We could share our skills and information

Accept and explore that other culture’s experience and views

Not just bellow our leaders’ billious demands and agendas,

Look at each others’ faces, lives, communities and realities

Talk to and learn from each other

~

This could happen now

But who would profit by such a thing?

~

Such devices already exist

And are shot into the far reaches of outer space

Such keen traders are the human race

With a childish need to show off, make a deal

Sell a vision of our civilization, impress ourselves, at least,

Always hoping to get the best of any exchange.

Even the most savage attacks are fired with the force of love

Passion for the riches, to protect the family or some idea,

But our love bombs, our loving bombs will not answer our hopes

If we value our lives above others’, seek to crush what others love

If the vision we have wont admit what other eyes can see.

~

The technology we have now could bring peace to the world

But who would profit by such a thing?
