Guns in The News: The Numbing of America
The Second Amendment is the way to go, so say gun lovers and homeowners.
We feel safer in our homes and don't care if an intruder comes;
We simply stand our ground with a .45 Magnum.
If the one who was shot, not truly set to harm, we join the other moaners.
On the road, we drive and enjoy the breeze;
but as soon as someone cuts us off, we become uneased.
Hand gestures, shouts, and blaring horns, we will have none;
We'll show who's boss, with one flash of the gun.
More guns, we cry, for marshalls on flights, shows, and county fairs;
Hunting, practicing, get in a few fights over beers and dares.
If I am injured in my affairs, my gun carrying son would set it right, as bagging bears.
Many would say prayers and share baby tears.
When I hear of gun fired, drive-bys at schools, theaters, malls or grassy knolls;
Not to bear arms is what I fear most;
I am sorry for the poor soul, but I don't want any gun control.
Reserving the Second Amendment is what's utmost.
When Americans hear of a gun shooting, far or near, on the news;
We wonder who was out of place or needed to be schooled.
We say words of care for hearts with grief succumbed;
In a day or so, there will be another one--bum, thrum, thrum, thrum. __by CM
