The bodies weren’t even cold
When people safe distances away
Made jokes about the dead.
Their bodies are barely in the ground
And people are using them
As weapons for their selfish,
The fire alarm went off,
A kid that’s been pushed too far
Waits with a gun.
Killed seventeen on the spot,
Wounded fourteen others.
A teacher was willing to give his life
To save those he taught
News organizations trying
To alter the survivors’
Words for their selfish wants and needs
A young man said “Goodbye”
To some of his friends, forever
When the gunman, kid,
Put bullets into them.
We’ve got people in our society
That want to kill their unborn children
Simply because they don’t want them
We’ve got people that overlook the facts
And use emotions
People that want to use the deaths of the innocent
To condemn those they do not agree with.
Handing the survivors scripts
To feed their needs.
These same people are the ones
Responsible for most gun violence
They even have gangs supporting them
For their own selfish needs.
When all that have guns are criminals,
Would you feel safe?
Would you walk out
In broad daylight
When these people can strike at all hours?
When society would blame the innocent 2nd Amendment,
Written to protect us from the government,
And each other?
Yet we laugh about bullets
Going over our heads,
The loud explosions in the gun.
From a safe distance.
The same people that want our guns to be gone
Are the same people that want to hurt their own
With child, but unwanted
To be killed before it sees daylight.
Wants peace, but tries to accomplish that
Through excessive violence
On their own and the innocent.
Is this truly what we want?
Until all that remains,
Is the memory of what was once,
A safe place?
