WALKABOUTSVERSE 85 OF 230

Poem 85 of 230:  LANDMINES

I’m thinking of Sting’s song “Russians,”
    Which notes the ways wars can be fought;
He highlights nuclear weapons,
    And there’s another crazy sort:

Landmines kill and maim innocents,
    Long after their targets have fled;
To them should go layers’ repents,
    And mine production should be dead.
