Kites and carpets

Bombs in donkey carts
kites and carpets signal slaughter
Rush moves the world of us listeners about as if it were his own giant Farmville.

What if the machinery of war-making turned its baleful eye towards Haiti and sent everything there to ease their  sorrow and pluck them up and begin to build a country for a truly country-less people? Wouldn't this be honorable, heroic?
