Guns

Written by: Joyce Johnson

The horror of the story stuns,
Another massacre with guns.

So many innocents are lost.
They paid the catastrophic cost.

But there are folks who stoutly say
Their guns and amunition stay

Or they and loved ones could be harmed.
They vow they must be fully armed.

Some of the folks who run the show,
Say that assault rifles must go.

The other side with different view,
Say guns don't kill, but people do.

They cannot find a common ground
And sensible answers are not found.

While they are wrangling and delay,
School children are the ones to pay.

When two sides argue and defer
More tragic incidents occur.
