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 

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

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

                                             Keith Garrett
