The Presidents Solution.

The Presidents Solution.

A Poem by Paul Bell

I’m that teacher with the concealed weapon

The Presidents solution

I hear the shooting

It’s getting closer

My concealed weapon feels so hot now

No training for that

I’m a good teacher

Results tell me that

I’m not law enforcement

No soldier am I

No soldier would go into battle with a handgun

But the President doesn’t seem to get it

I’m up against an automatic rifle

I can't kill him at a hundred yards

But he can kill me at two hundred yards

I’m now the President's man

Shot like a rag doll

Just a gimmick

For the N.R.A.

Nicely pu, Paul. The teacher as gunslinger - hell of a concept. What kind of half-wit could come up with that? Oh, wait a minute - a presidential, billionaire, megalomaniac half-wit who is completely out of touch with reality! Ain't it great what can get elected these days?

There is non-stop yapping over here on account of this ridiculousness being commented on by every pundit around. I love the way you finally put it into simple everyday human terms, instead of all the dramatic rhetoric laced with blame. I mean, I can't even get thru a freakin minute without imagining how this would feel to a teacher. Hell I feel sorry for the armed guard who stayed outside for 4 minutes -- is it realistic to eat this guy alive just becuz he's about as chicken-s**t realistic as any normal person would be? This s**t is making me crazy, so that's why I love seeing it laid out so simply, so logically, so how-the-hell-could-anybody-not-see-this!?!?!??! Thank you for helping me regain a modicum of sanity (((HUGS))) Fondly, Margie

You made it so clear how impractical The Presidents Solution is!! If only those in power think twice before making suggestions! A poem very appropriate for the current times!! Brilliant!!

I like poetry and stories that tell me something. Sometimes the shortest poems hit the hardest. If I post something serious, don't worry, a funny poem will follow. Don't hesitate to tell me if my po.. more..
