Weapons of Our Warfare


The numbered list of reasons why
That I don't own a gun
Lets start with, I don't want to die
And killing's just not fun

Or maybe its because my children's Dad
Shot himself when far too young to die
His little ones but three and four
When his tortured soul did fly

And how about his older brother
Slain in war by guns
Along with many many others
Of America's fighting son's

A world without guns and bombs
Where no one dies in vain
For me to even contemplate
You'd think I'm quite insane
