Arizona Laws

For years The State Of Arizona has been known for it's strict laws
They made no bones about it and did not back down
The old territorial prison, once there they did not want to go back
Was not a "country club" for outlaws
Gun fights and the OK Corral, back in the day in old Tombstone Town
But it is not the same now, we are under attack

"The Politically Correct", say in is the Drug Cartels in Mexico
Isn't that so special, don't want to offend anyone
Garbage, it is the drug smugglers of the Mexican Mafia
But their Mafiaoso and our Mafiaoso seem to be more than amigo
Mafiaoso is Mafioso is the same anywhere under the Sun
Now their lawyers are causing all of this racial hysteria

Mexico has a lot of good people and damn fine workers
I have ranched and lived on the Mexican border for 60 years
The ones that live and work here, leave them alone
Solve the problem and go after the Mafiaoso drug smugglers
The poor in Mexico know the Mafiaoso and have their fears
One reason that they came here, because it scares then to the bone

When a cowboy meets a rattle snake, he chops of the head off
The problem is solved and he goes on his way
I say give them two choices, nylon or grass rope
When hung, that turns the problem off
But some don't see it that way
It would give all Americans more hope

Some say that I am old, the old school and The Old Testement
I believe a tooth for a tooth and a eye for a eye
In the Old West, when a man stole a horse, he was hung back in the day
But let God be the Judge, that is his department
Our enemies are God less people, that they cannot deny
They best thing that we can all do is pray

    Interesting opinion in this one...I am ambivalent the death penalty....I feel that is a person is proven guilty beyond a shadow of a doubt that they should be given chances to make it right with their Maker...But I know that some people will never change...Thanks for stopping by and commenting on my short write...Sara
