DIVIDENDS OF PEACE

I get mighty angry when I hear
about slimy, scumbag, war-profiteers
Haliburton, General Dynamics, and Bechtel
cashed in. Got folks elected who they knew would do their bidding.
There’s a world of wealth that awaits us all from the
“Peace Dividend” 
If we bring war to an end.

You’ll never sell me on the warped idea that
wars are good for the economy.
A few corporations and their CEOs takin’ home
their blood money.

Meddling in affairs of other nations has just made the world a mess.
We’d be better off today if we’d just stayed home to mind our own business.

Billions of dollars spent to feed the hungry 
”War Machine” 
could end all poverty.

Time to preach
The dividends of peace.
Time to preach
The dividends of peace.

Dividends to feed the hungry.
Dividends for healthcare, too.
Dividends to house the homeless.
Dividends for me and you.

Why don’t you preach,
the dividends of peace.
Why don’t you preach,
the dividends of peace.
Why don’t you preach,
the dividends of peace.
Why don’t you preach,
the dividends of peace.
