Don't bring @ gun


to a baptism, to your child's
first grammar-school play,
to a first holy communion,
to a confirmation, to a wedding,
to your ex-wife's next wedding,
to your last day on the job,
because chances are high
that you'll soon regret it
& so will everybody else;
so just don't bring a gun.
