A gun so nice to hold
Firm grip from one so bold

Shiny bullets fingers do enfold
To only the brave guns are sold

Not only to the brave are coffins sold
Silk lined some are, but still rot and mould 

Not only bought for the unfortunate ill, we’re told
Not a perk for those growing infirm or old

Lives wiped out gone feelings left cold
Guns to the brave are always sold

Coffins the innocents do enfold
Firm to the grip, handles cold

A gun so nice to hold
A body not, I am told.

    i made a reply comment in mine Mandy, its not the gun that kills its the finger that pulls the trigger. Nice write hun...Seren

    What a finish !! You wrapped up the topic so well. I'm still of the thought that guns don't kill, people do. The gun not having a life of it's own, yet held in the wrong breaths death sadly.
