Self Protection For All - Our Constitutional Right - Poem by James B. Earley

National Guard Armories across the land….
Time…to arm...every child….woman and man

….Free…of all cost…..the documented solution
Ordained guaranteed so saith the Constitution

…..The right to own……the right to bear
2nd Amendment to date ain't got me nowhere

….In terms of security……I ain't got none
Can't afford the bullets ain't got no gun

When scheme was hatched ‘tis indeed well known
…..Right to bear…in fact….meant right to own

Constitutionally it is…my Country's commitment
…Literal words I've read in the 2nd Amendment

Sharpton and Jackson….put yourselves to good use
….Raise hell…publicize….2nd Amendment's abuse

As a matter of equity have gun manufacturers pay
…A penance to the Government…demand N R A

Grant membership in the form of absolutely free passes
2nd Amendment reparations to the abandoned masses

……National Guard Armories……across the land
Must arm…every child…..woman….and man

…..Free…of all cost…..cause clearly restitution
Is ordained…guaranteed so saith the Constitution

Self protection for some…is the curious plight…
Self protection for all…our Constitutional Right


Author's Note:
Negro….and Indian…rebellions….horrific…..
2nd Amendment protection designed specific

…..Now…..in full circle…there's fear…..of another
Not ISIS…not foreign…but the mind…of my BROTHER

    '….In terms of security……I ain't got none
    Can't afford the bullets ain't got no gun'

    good line, although bullets for low calibre rifles are cheap, however

    'Self protection for some…is the curious plight…
    Self protection for all…our Constitutional Right'

    which does not apply in many countries, the police bearing arms is a killer for some citizens, top topics never far from the public eye
