Drone Funeral

Drone Funeral

For A and B

(This is performance Fred, Art went home to pout)


Note; May rework this

but needed to remove it from my brainpan.



A Before we start the service 

B There is noone in there

B There is noone in

A Before we start the service

War demands we start the service



A The family requested a closed casket

B  Why closed, what family

     what family, why closed


A Yes this Drone was on a “spy” mission

Drone spies die, drones spies die

B  Don’t funerals demand bodies

animal or human

Is it time for a country’s funeral


A And so we lay to rest

And so we lay to rest

B any plan for peace

any surcease

from war and war

and more and more


A  And in conclusion, send monies and arms,

in the drones name name

to your favorite military charity

B  And in conclusion, 

let this be your memory point

for when our lives changed

The day we remember

a Drone

went and died


A Now we go to war

B Someday all the flags will be gone

when countries only live in memory
