STOP!!!

 

What are you doing, going out with your gun,

It’s people you’re killing, you are not having fun.

 

You are slaughtering people, you just don’t care who --

Do they really all mean nothing to you?

 

You aim and you fire, but you don’t know who you’re hitting,

Could just be their size or where they happen to be sitting.

 

An accident that someone just happens to be

In the wrong place, the wrong time – it’s easy to see

 

That you are a killer that is out of control and

Their future you are holding right there in your hand.

 

Maybe you’ll see sense and won’t open fire,

Maybe that anger, from it you’ll tire.

 

What’s wrong with you, sanity, has it all fled,

Left a big monster to dwell in your head?

 

You’re taking parents and children from those that they love

But you’re living on empty, giving yourself a shove

 

To be that bit nearer to your own impending end,

That the police are going to you apprehend;

 

Will you ever face prison for committing this crime

Or take your last breath with your face in this grime.

 

To allow monsters to roam with their ammo and gun,

Society must be as mad as someone

 

Who can look in the mirror and say, ‘That wasn’t me.

But the right to bear weapons proves that we are free.’
