More guns than people in the USA
Over 20 million assault rifles  

Try to round them up
and you’ll spawn another Waco  

It’s not even a Mexican standoff –
the guns already won  

shootings now routine as stormy weather
an inconvenience, like traffic or inflation  

What we need to watch for is January 6
exploding like tulips in spring  

across the nation, loaded with justification
and rationalization and all the glorious guns 

Until we learn what holds a country together
we won’t understand what’s tearing it apart
