I Want A Remedy

PCC-53242 Secretary of Defense Robert S. McNamara.  January 12 , 1961.  DoD photo by Oscar Porter, U.S. Army.  (Released)

drop the hand grenade
inside that warrior’s suit of armor
see if it can stop his hand
from moving the war machine deeper
into a neighborhood that once gave birth & nurtured

drop the hand grenade with the pin still in
and still they scramble
for their survival
