Living with a law in a Country in denial.

Living with a law in a Country in denial.

A Poem by andrew mitchell

When you have no gun laws
you're buying into trouble
death descends on the
backs of the ignorant,
where powers that be,
make the decisions
but are not the ones shot dead:
funny about that!
A bullet anyone?

United are the States
where people are in demand,
cos there are too many bullets
where shooting is free
and targets are everywhere.
Amen. God save America!

Not trying to get all political here, but gun laws don't change crazy f*****g people and calculated attacks. They outlaw them, they end up on the black market, where only criminals or collectors are purchasing them, the latter of the two which are the ones that are using these guns to commit crimes.

Our country would be better served to make stricter prescription drug laws, which fuel the drug market which causes gun related violence, fuels misdiagnosed and unneeded prescribed anti depressant pills which fuels mental illness, which in turn fuels senseless acts of violence.

As long as the ones that make the laws get shot.
yes...please God save us all ;) your poem is emotive, clear and concise .. not an easy thing to stick to when it comes to such controversial political subjects ... i would make my arguments on the Constitutional Right to Bear Arms for law abiding citizens of the USA .. but you know them i am sure ... we pretty much disagree on this one my friend..respectfully of course ... ;)

I love pushing the limits on writing poetry. Not everyone's cup of tea but maybe a few will enjoy the twists and turns, the simple, the depth of simplicity, the bizarre and the ridiculous. Strindberg.. more..
