Another favorite: Bruce Cockburn**Q**s If I Had a Rocket Launcher

Here comes the helicopter -- second time today
Everybody scatters and hopes it goes away
How many kids they**Q**ve murdered only God can say
If I had a rocket launcher...I**Q**d make somebody pay

I don**Q**t believe in guarded borders and I don**Q**t believe in hate
I don**Q**t believe in generals or their stinking torture states
And when I talk with the survivors of things too sickening to relate
If I had a rocket launcher...I would retaliate

On the Rio Lacantun, one hundred thousand wait
To fall down from starvation -- or some less humane fate
Cry for guatemala, with a corpse in every gate
If I had a rocket launcher...I would not hesitate

I want to raise every voice -- at least I**Q**ve got to try
Every time I think about it water rises to my eyes.
Situation desperate, echoes of the victims cry
If I had a rocket launcher...Some son of a bitch would die

Add one more. A bit more focused on the ones who send the ones to war, but never go themselves.
