it's not the gun that kills, i get it,
but lets not be senseless
it begins with a text message:
Good, how u?
Got and AR
here's a pic
what do you think?
i like to shoot things
& break into his ex-grilfriend's house,
hide in her room til she came home,
upset she broke up with him, to feed
his obsession, caught by her mom
& the only reason he has no record
was volunteering with the cops
they knew him,
22, married now, a new kid & two jobs
to pay the bills, but has $1700 to drop
aren't they supposed to ask about med-
ication & previous mental condition
but then again, WE HAVE THE RIGHT
TO BEAR ARMS & sales to make
while congress is distracted, bickering
over taxes for smaller percentages
will bring it up to show
you and your boys
we are leaving
putting miles between us, feels a bit
safer with each mile marker---wants to show
my 8 and 10 year old---how far
is far enough?
