Guns and consciousness
In memory of victims of elementary school massacre
A nation fallen in love with its guns
Obsessed with a right, “Of the people to bear arms”
When was the last time people deterred the tyranny
Formed a Militia with guns in their hands?
Amendment, relevant two centuries ago
Guns are legal for hunting, some argue,
How many bullets from automatic gun
Required for a prancing deer to fall and die?
Obsession with guns has nothing to do
With security, liberty or constitution
Violence is what’s engraved in collective mind
Mobsters glorified, villains praised in Hollywood movies and video games
The pop culture is to blame,
Gun makers, profiteers, politicians with strings attached
Free media never dares to ask
Why morality of a nation is on the verge of collapse.
Dystopia is in the making, stage is set
For a young man, an anti-hero, a demented villain with automatic gun
To snaps into action, to take charge.
Minutes later, carnage everywhere, tragedy in sight.
Blood of children stains the conscience when fallen angels wallow in vain.
