17 students passed away In Florida 2018 looked ever so bright
But now I fear
It's every month occasion now Should I predict that next school shooting Will come by sometimes next month too?
I live in Canada
So maybe it shouldn't be relevant to me But I'm so tired of being silent So tired of same thing happening on the news
I was afraid that people would say
"That it had nothing to do with you, Why don't you focus on your own problem, You're all talk; just writing a poem here that doesn't even rhyme What more can you do beside just adding fuel to
But I just have to point out the insanity
Because it seems like the most shooting are from Students who were suffering too much They couldn't seek help and instead turned to the guns
Where they sought horrid fantasy in torrents of reality
So, how can you give guns to the teachers Who have once taught the same student?
Your telling the teacher To shoot their own student To protect other students. How can you even consider such idea???
Did the world change so much that Now teachers are also soldiers?
I was even more surprised that Young adult and mentally ill Could, could, could buy a gun
People aren't meant to ****** even in self defense They get haunted by tragedy of their own choice As flash of death and red goes in between their eyes Despite living, they might as well have died
Nor do they need a gun in this peaceful age Especially in a country where abundance of ideas, Democracy and national pride is constantly praised Thus why brew violence by providing the means?
So why are you not banning the guns dear oh politicians? What is your reasoning behind the ratio of 70:30 vote? Is it the money; how much are the gun company paying you? What is going on in that White House that is no longer white?
OR is it truly for the freedom part of the constitution? Even when people are dying? Is having the right to own a gun, truly what it means to be free? Doesn't our strength of choice at time like this... Isn't that what freedom is about?
