What if it was your child?

Ammunition Ammo Bullets Wildcat Caliber Ar

The numbers grow, but all we know

are thoughts and prayers.

But all your cares

won’t change the fact, we won’t react.

So step aside

and let them die.

Cause when we wail to no avail,

it happens more…

They die by scores.

To blame the brain is just a game

a sparkly muzzle

to hide the guzzle

cause rule of greed is all they heed.

My right to arm

and do your daughter harm…

The NRA has won the fight, cause we’re the rube who won’t do right.

On ending violence,

we all fall silent.

Daily prompt: Rube
