Modern Day Warrior

He's a modern day warrior,
Drives his War Machine
By internet and Satnav
From his computer screen.
He can scan the world
From the sky and near space
With instruments so sensitive
It can pick out a single face.
It has given him the power,
Given him the skill
To, without warning, carry out
Any long range kill.
He's a modern day warrior
Who can, with ease and care,
Selectively destroy and murder
From his comfy Office chair.
It's the same the whole world over.
Every faction thinks they're right.
And they're prepared to defend it
By use of force and might.
Millions of years of Evolving
To bring mankind to this state
Of preaching love and peace
And practising murder and hate.
