“ARMED & DANGEROUS?” a poem in the series: “God Defends My God Given Right To Bear Firearms!” July 8, 2019 (Monday)
It’s SO EASY – to shoot* – and lose your life
The Gun! who-invented? such a sinister thing!
Well, it-was-certainly A-KILLER** for-killing doth bring,
Hopes! for-a faster, a-more-efficient-kill!
Well, curse your invention(s), you stinky ol’ “pill!”
It should-not-a even-been invented AT ALL!
IF – it might contribute – to-even one-person’s-fall!
It-just makes-it too easy – to “DO -yourself” quick;
Curse your invention! F – – – your gun pick!
Here’s to YOU-ALL, who LOVE having guns,
Because “It’s Your Right!” You-all-suck, you-sad-“huns!”
YOUR FOCUS ON FIREARMS, brings me alarm!
When you look at this picture!*** A BULLET DOTH HARM,
Those who are suffering, and haven’t-time-to-think,
Before they JUST SHOOT THEMSELVES!
Well, I’ll-label-YOU “a-fink,”
IF-you-are-so-focused on having your way,
With gun ownership! Well, I-wish-for-the-day,
When-your-foul-mind(s)-clear(s) and you-CAN count-the-LOSS,
Of EVEN ONE PERSON! Your guns, you should toss!
Yes, I know, HERE’S-THE-THING, as you’re moaning and gripe:
“The World is GUN-DANGEROUS, and filled with such strife,
That my gun, it-is NEEDED, to-insure I’m well guar-dED,
Or-else SOMEONE WILL-SHOOT-ME, & I’LL-SURELY BE-DEAD!”
Well, GET THIS! I agree! Now-that-guns-have-gone-this-far!
But – LOOK INTO YOUR HEART! and-please-scrape-out-“the-tar,”
The sticky, black grease – of a-dirty-gun there!
[It’s]-A-KILLING-CLUTCHING-DESIRE – with-an-expedient-care!
And – IF this here song:
makes you feel EVEN-A-LITTLE-BIT-GOOD,
You’ve more-scraping-to-do Scrape-away! Yes, I-WOULD!
And, IF you wanna tell me: “J-Jay, go JUMP IN A LAKE!”
Well, I’m already hiding there – “under water,” waiting-for-your-“gun-will”-to-break!
- – on purpose – or not!
** – Yes, I know, we’re ALL killers, BUT – we needn’t go around proving it all the time!
