Welcome to The Gun Show

sad and no end in sight –

Politically Poetic

Stockpile military weapons, 
Stockpile high-volume gun clips
Spread of infested rats through the country. 
Is it our fate?
Is this the end? Predicted apocalypse?
Registered, unregistered, and ghost weapons
are used to kill at a family dispute. 
With a single trigger within seconds
They silence us; they make us strangely mute. 
A simple graduation party, a school, a mall, a club,  
A postal office or a quiet walk on a beach 
Become target zones – this is no figure of speech. 
America, the land of free without freedom
A gun behind the back and friendly “Hello” 
Hunting own demons every season
America, welcome to the gun show.
