Think of the power a gun-man holds
The power to kill
To intimidate
To show us all who’s boss.
Think of the pain that shoots out the barrel
The lives to end
The bottomless grief
A lost cause who causes more loss.
Think of the power a gun-maker holds
An issue that wedges
A senator bought
And militia men standing by.
Think of the struggle a voter must face
“I like little kids”
“I love my guns, though”
“That senator’s not a bad guy.”
