Reflections

His mind was closed,
he would not see.
The hours we spent arguing.
they never made a difference.
Finally I walked away.
I went to have a heart to heart with myself.
It was then that I found
that I was he
and he was me.

polite

a polite society
violence on the rise
the more we are armed
more meet their demise

they want open carry
claim it's a right
what it really does
is bring the public more fright

how can we tell
if they're a good guy or bad
more death on the streets
more families grow sad

but we're told
it ain't the guns
it's just fools
havin' fun

then they fight regulation
that the constitution has called for
making the streets that more dangerous
and blood runs up the score

but it's really not about guns
it is stupid people
and there's no cure for stupid
when the NRA is their steeple

The Battle Field has Come Home

This armed America
the one they told us
would be a polite society
when all carry weapons

our cities
they've become killing fields
we as a people
have become the worst of all animals

officers taking lives
claiming they fear for their own
snipers now returning the favor
as they fear the police

it seems as the road towards that polite society
has become paved with the dead
merely bricks mortered in place
with their blood

will we see be fewer combatants
as the body count rises
or are the re-enforcements
on their way

Alone

Sitting amongst his friends
alone in his bunker
beans and rice
cases of water
a geneator and cans of gas
shotguns, hand guns
assault weapons
all with ammo to fit
prepared for the worst
not realizing
he is living
in a self made prison
one brought on by unwarrented fear
he's exercized his second amendment rights
but his freedom has disappeared
