                                                    A gun is a deadly weapon
                                           It can kill people with wasted reason

                                                     Authorized to have this
                                                 Only the army and the police

                                               Don’t use it to point to a person
                                           You will landed straight to the prison

                                      A gun is an instrument for an unending war
                                          Civilians traumatized for a painful scar

                            So please have some conscience not to use it barbarically
                                      Coz it will cause our life and so don’t be a folly 

                                                          January 29, 2013

    It is so sad that humanity has not learned to love instead of hating. A thoughtfuyl poem. Thank you for your comment on my Teddy Bear poem. Love, Joyce
