GUN IN HAND

This world has changed but some things never do,

Just as the pioneers did and all life and lands before,

We live today in a much scarier world, gun in hand.

Weapons from the beginning of man, it is how we live,

Protect ourselves from the fear, what we can’not see.

Paranoia and the unknown live with us in our homes,

If not a gun in hand then always a thought, living as though.

In different ways we do, we all manage in such a way,

Our own gun in hand in this land in which we stand.

  1. Ouch!!! guns scare me big time…but then again, here in Canada we are not as keen on guns, surely not in Québec. Too many accidents can happen…but you are right that there are many other things that can hurt as well.
