Got A Hammer But Need A Gun - Poem by James Urwin

Batten down the hatches...even nail shut the door,
for tonight...a time starts again...our history changed, forever more.

As the yobs rule our streets... in all Towns and down every country lane,
uneducated with unreason...built in with confusion...leads their gruesome, barbaric gain.

In the chaotic ness of destruction...amongst the flicker of a homes candle lit light,
the destroyers come in droves, masked by the cowardly darkness, of night.

The beasts of pain...who riot until sane....who are seeking such beastly pleasure,
upon your doors sturdiness...with hardened feet and shoulders, with there might...they will force and measure.

now...it`s time for a Gun...or to give up? and give them your family and treasure?


Poet's Notes about The Poem

UK Law sucks....Not so long ago we had rioting on the streets of the UK...we were only days away from complete destruction of all good we know, IMO...If ever an English man ever needed a gun, it was then....luckerly it all ended as quick as it started...but what about the next time? Every law abiding citizen should have a gun locked/hidden away for these moments?
