Firearm Fantasies

Written by: S.Jagathsimhan Nair

Firearm fantasies

Guns should never be a matter of right
Firearms are not fun in  psychopath’s hands
Lax gun control laws tragedies invite

Mentally deranged are there  in all  lands
Who knows when one of them  decides to kill
Firearms are not fun in  psychopath’s hands

Crazy ones may  look like men of goodwill
Wrong is the view that firearms   make life safe
Who knows when one of them decides to kill.

Make  stricter gun control laws that do chafe
Only the deserving ones should own guns
Wrong is the view that firearms   make life safe.

One in ten thousand may need to own one
The  government needs to fearlessly act
Only the deserving ones should own guns.

Deal with the issue with resolve and tact
Guns should never  be a matter of right
The government needs to fearlessly act
Lax gun control laws tragedies invite.

Fantasy mine
Issue real for all
Obama’s  dilemma?

Ps: Written just after the killing of 26 people, including 20 small children in a school in Newtown, Connecticut, US, by a gunman . Attention is also invited to my poem ‘Firearm fatalities’ posted in Aug after the Wisconsin incident.
