Protecting, Not Attacking

I believe in protecting

Of course, in self-defense

Not in aggressively attacking

Somebody standing on the fence.


In presence of a gun

There’s a potential violence

This is no obvious fun for no one

In the crowd whose dying to dance.


Hide or put your Wesson away

Because everyone deserves another day

Use Wesson oil instead to cook or fry

Fish, goat meat, turkey, chicken and apple pie.
