Army Surplus

How many playgrounds will you give me for this tank?

I've got a helicopter with cannons
for a school on a river bank.

We've got a lot of bullets
and a bunch of useless bombs;
Can I trade these in
to help out some single moms?

I can't really think
of a time that I'd need
a machine gun to kill
a thousand, indeed.

perhaps you could take
all this extra stuff,
and instead give the homeless
a life less gruff.

perhaps we could send
130,000 troops
into New York to feed
the hungry on their stoops.

With this much extra,
why stop there?
We could be feeding
everyone, everywhere!

And imagine all the children
playing with their toys,
rather than them screaming
from the bombing's noise.

If all of that is not enough,
I've got a nuclear submarine
to put up to auction
for the American Dream.
