Bodies fall in red pools of blood
Gunshots piercing silent prayers,
Peaceful mosque erupts in violence
More destruction by armed bigots.
Children murdered many times
While only seeking education
Slain in their school sanctuaries,
Mentally deranged, allowed to have guns.
Shopping malls can be dangerous too
Gun crazed fanatics hunting grounds,
Is any place really safe today?
With guns allowed almost everywhere,
Our country has more guns than people.
Owning guns, almost any kind, any place,
Right seemed worshipped like religion,
Will this cascading violence ever stop?
Shouldn’t lives be more important than guns?
Can’t more responsible laws still allow freedom?
Important questions lawmakers should ponder
While we keep waiting for them to act.
