Does it even exist?
High schools, middle schools, elementary's at risk.
the gun in her bag went off but it was only a prequel
three more kids 12-year-old girl shot four people.
Is she going to jail for being given a gun?
these days anybody under the sun
can get one.
It's not his fault but who do her parents blame?
What do they curse when they remember her name?
When they're speaking at the funeral of a daughter taken to soon.
When will we learn that nobody's immune
to the fear, to a bullet to near, to here and there
we hearing their screams
see the killing of dreams
she was hoping to be a nurse
and get her degrees
but he was just showing off
talking all the right talk
the gun hit the ground
shots rung out in the crowd
now she's down for the count
and never waking back up
he's hurt now too
he's not getting back up
he shot himself in the leg
left now to grovel and beg
but there's none to be given
in this world that were living in
his crime has a twin, and
a triplet and cousins
he ain't alone
in his own home,
to guilt ridden to leave
to sorry to grieve
doesn't believe himself worthy
and he's not in a hurry
but he's ready to end it
maybe see her again
he wants to apologize to his kind old friend
if only he'd known then
what he knows now
That guns are not meant for fucking around
and should never be left out where easily found
by a child, who won't know any better
and will pull the trigger before reading the black letters
