Our Goose Is Cooked

Rating: 4.4
I cannot anymore say "I do not give a hoot! "
When a policeman pulls over my car,
First thing I say is, "Officer, please don't shoot! "

Now, I am afraid to go--to venture very far
From the security of my very own back yard
I no longer visit my local neighborhood bar

These days we need a personal security guard
To feel safe when we go to the village malls
Guns from all public places should be barred

Once we could handle old-fashioned brawls
But with serial killers and snipers on the loose
I am afraid our backs are pressed to the walls

Discarded social mores have cooked our goose.

Great poem. The stress of today has caused so much mental illness and for some lashing out guns blessing is the solution. Its bad.

Indeed these are difficult times and fear tends to rule the day. It's good to see a poem written in terza rima.
