UAV or not to UAV

Gently humming in the autumnal breeze

Gliding overhead like a wicked dream

The black sheep of research, the UAV


Not spitting out fire or a laser beam

A large improvement on ground-based technique

Simply measuring if the air is clean


With an IR imager for a beak

The Global Hawk is beauty, not grotesque

So please now, let’s end all of the mystique


After all, drones don’t kill people unless

Told by the man behind the oval desk
