A Child And A Gun

Rating: 5.0
When a child is taught to use a gun
It's downfall from humanity has just begun,
They don't care to watch cartoons anymore
Instead they want to watch dramas, and war.
Then with a gun they are taught how to kill
First for the excitement, and then for the thrill,
Paper targets are first, then a bottle, and then a can
Next targets will be animals, and then man.
When they hear languages from different tongues
They then believe that all strangers are carrying guns,
"Always be locked and loaded and never be liable"

The children are our future which many people still say But, for our children lately, I have sat down and cried and did pray, I would hate to think to win an argument or even a dispute That our children willpull out their guns, and shoot. future of our children who grow up in such circumstances. a very fine poem indeed. tony

Children should never have a need to pick up gun. Even with hunting I worry that is done in excess. Yet it has become societial norm. Then we wonder why so many senseless shooting occur. Cheers yet another so true poem.

My nephew never did trapshooting, after 4 years in the marines he came home, he found out his wife was cheating on him (don’t know his state of mind) he went to stay with his parents. One day while he was alone and drinking he dug up his stepfathers collectors gun, he took that gun walked off the property to a nearby cave, and he blew off half his head. If the gun wasn’t there, the gun would not had killed him.

I don’t understand your use of “libel”. Hmm? I like scary/Mary. ;) Some favorite lines: “It sends enemies to, and to Heaven friends it will also send. With their guns under their pillows they will happily sleep To relax they count bullets, instead of white sheep, ” I’d send it to MyPoemList, but PH seems to have discontinued that feature recently. Bri (: comments and your responses to them also are of interest

Bri, I think perhaps Randy meant 'liable' instead of 'libel'.

When I was younger my brother and I bought us toy guns, which led to B.B. and pellet guns, we’d shoot anything and we enjoyed it. Then one day after shooting a bird we destroyed the B.B. guns and pellet guns, never used them ever again.

Too pesimistic my friend. I started with a potato gun and ended with none. I get your drift.++10

When I was younger my brother and I bought us a B.B. and pellet gun from our paper money (we were paperboys) . We soon got tired of shooting targets, that we started shooting birds and dogs and almost any animal, my brother shot our baby sister and our older brother with it, we finally decided to destroy the guns. Never used them since.
