Find weapons we can send to poor Ukraine!
But nothing new, for that would be insane.
Just stuff that is beyond its use by date.
Let’s face it — it will soon be in a state
Of disorder — complete disintegration.
One shell and it will be a conflagration;
A sacrifice to our war of attrition;
A target for damned Russian ammunition.
Oh yes we all agree it’s a sad story,
But we must clear out all stale inventory.
And when the last old piece of junk is gone
We’ll order lots of stuff from Raytheon.
