Ode To Arms - Poem by Mark Bratlie

Guns in the bedroom and guns in the shower,
with each and every household getting safer by the hour.
Guns in the workplace here and everywhere.
Guns in the churches, so bad guys best beware.

Guns in the courthouse with judges packing heat,
making every courtroom as safe as the street.
Each teacher needs a weapon loaded close to hand,
presenting to their students an example that is grand.

More guns are just what we all need
More guns will be our sacred creed
Load up all those magazines
Let 'em blast and watch 'em bleed

Cops are not the only ones to carry daily heat,
as each and every one of us should walk armed in the street.
Designer weapons are the thing for all us modern folk.
Striped holsters may sound funny, but the irons are no joke.

Our weapons should include the ones that criminals procure,
as rifles with enormous clips will make us more secure.
Ownership of weapons is a right that is divine
and we will turn a deaf ear as the opposition whines.

More guns are just what we all need
More guns will be our sacred creed
Load up all those magazines
Let 'em blast and watch 'em bleed

Guns do not kill anyone, as they lie in wait.
Arm each and every good guy before it is too late.

More guns are just what we all need
More guns will be our sacred creed
Load up all those magazines
Let 'em blast and watch 'em bleed
