Peace in Pieces

The sky is falling   send in the drones
no place to hide   enough is enough
little by little   show them who’s boss
hope slips away   weak we are not
death is a gift   they won’t soon forget
when life is pure hell   bomb them to bits
mercy is madness   mercy’s for losers
though some live to tell   who haven’t a clue
darkness unending   bleeding heart saps
no place to hide   enough is enough
the sky is falling   send in the drones
