‘The day before the asteroid hit’ by Zoolon
The news that some sicko coward morphed into the big man because he carried a gun into a synagogue and randomly killed loads of innocent people leaves us relatively normal people wondering ‘Why?’
I had this random thought about the ways certain humans try to justify carrying a gun, some relying on the rule of law phrase, ‘The right to bear arms’. Maybe it would be better all-round if that sentence read, ‘The right to bare arms’ instead. That way the worst thing that could happen would be a sicko cowardly bloke wandering about in a short-sleeved t-shirt or a vest instead of carrying a shooter. A pity really that the bloke who wrote the original constitution version wasn’t a dyslexic. Had he been dyslexic the world might have been a much better place.
It’s a shame I have to have a stab at satire to explain how I feel. Can’t think of any other way to do it. The thing is words and music are all I’ve got. Sad times we live in.
CARRYING A GUN
It’s easy for a loser to become an alpha-male, when he’s carrying a gun
It’s easy for him to terminate just about anything, when he’s carrying a gun
He can take pride in having a big mouth, when he’s carrying a gun
He can take pride in doing his God’s work for Him, when he’s carrying a gun
He finds it easy to kill the innocents without remorse when he’s carrying a gun
The thing is, you’ll always be a prize arsehole when you’re carrying a gun
I’m guessing that doesn’t bother you, when you’re carrying a gun?
I need to stress here that I’m not having a pop at Americans. Far from it. Every nation has its scum. Here in the UK we have our fair share – they generally carry a knife. America is a nation of great creativity and generosity – I know that from the people I meet here on WP – besides, I don’t go scoring cheap points. Respect.
Time for some music. A bit of a protest number I wrote a while back, ‘Shout at Newsreels’;
Words for the sake of words;
A COAT OF FEW COLOURS
I wear a coat of few colours.
I write a lot about rainbows
but those who say they know these things
tell me the rainbows I see
are just black, grey and white
I’m good with that
If they never mentioned it
I’d never have known
so nothing really changed
