much money is to be made
it's a lucrative trade
this industry does quite well
its daily profits do swell

much sough after is the hardware
buyers seek it here and there
the deals for these goods
affect the world's many neighborhoods

hear the jets flying overhead
their payloads of bombs
the women and children dread

rifles killing people by the score
in all areas
of the Middle Eastern corridor

men in suits sit comfortably
they're selling vast amounts of weaponry
their kind of business deals
in all manner of fatalities

the military industrial complex
is cashing in on war
it is making billions of dollars
killing for revenue galore

each day death tolls
on our planet accrue
the arms sellers
gaining from the deadly slew
