A Terrific Christmas Present

A Terrific Christmas Present

By Elton Camp

A toy assault rifle is just simply the best
Parental approval of killing is expressed

There’s one purpose for this type gun
If the user thinks murder of people is fun

For hunting this weapon can’t be used
As if for self-defense it can’t be excused

Did the Founding Fathers have this in view
When the Second Amendment came through?

So if a Christmas present one is looking to buy
Then why not give a toy assault weapon a try?

To kill large numbers the kid can pretend
He may end up doing it for real in the end

The Prince of Peace Jesus Christ may be
But times are different now you see

The principle of “Thou shalt not kill”
Replaced by “I’ll do whatever I will”
