The gun and god combo

"The peacemaker" is Glock's new gun
Its spent rounds are rapture and fun
Yes killing's a thrill
Since I'm mentally ill 
And need to own more than just one

A gun for me is like prozac
The bullets clipped pills in a stack
I'm not paranoid
But have weapons deployed
In case I should have an attack

    I really like this one, Duke. Mentally ill is just a nice way to put it. They are seriously disturbed!! Love that last line of the second limerick. You really nailed it with humor.

    Can I just mention... I have mental illness, but never, ever, EVER would I think to go on a killing spree! Those kind of people, they aren't mentally "ill," they are just SICK! And twisted! Great limerick depicting the mind set of those kind of scary people

    And people who are classified as "ill" may have just a slight touch more of what the rest of us have. A thousand thank-you's to you for your great point!

    Anne, you are absolutely right. Due to the shortness of a limerick, the story is abridged. There are many people with mental illness who would give anything to be well and/or deal with it in a positive way. I happen to admire you very much. I think there should be much help available for all people in need.
