Fiction I know.

Or is it ?

So you dropped

 

Another bomb

 

On a township

 

Far away

 

A million dollar

 

Guided missile

 

Invariably

 

Went astray

 

A tender loving family

 

Civilians

 

You might say

 

Going about their business

 

Living

 

From day to day

 

Caught up in

 

A holy war

 

For an end

 

Is what they pray

 

A hole in the ground

 

They are no more

 

The ultimate price

 

Has just been paid
