My interpretation of a comment made by President Trump, following the Texas shooting. Please note -- this is the polar opposite to my own views!

A Call To Arms!

 

Anyone out there that’s not got a gun,

The message is clear -- ‘Go get yourself one!’

We won’t restrict them, that is so true,

For freedom to bear arms is what protects you.

If you find yourself in a bad situation

An armed neighbour friend can bring you salvation.

All of these crazies, all of these thieves,

Gunmen who want to ensure no-one leaves --

The best defence from them is to arm yourself,

Make yourself ready to take someone’s health.

We’ll become a society ruled by our desire,

To take that action, to aim and to fire.

Don’t become a victim, buy yourself that gun --

Self-protection is the game. ‘Go get yourself one!’
