‘' That's Why So Many Innocents Still Die ‘' - Poem by Bri Mar

America the land of the brave and the free,
That's what you'd have us believe,
All those murdered with guns would not agree,
As more families are once again left to grieve.

Every year the craving for weapons increases,
As yet another tragedy unfolds,
This needless mass murder just never ceases,
Yet bearing arms the gun lobby upholds.

Weapons of death can so easily be bought,
It's like buying a tin of beans,
Is it some major battle that has to be fought?
Or does it make them feel like marines.

Assault rifles in battle a soldier would use,
Are bought and stored in the home,
When they're fired total chaos ensues,
Yet they're as popular as a toothbrush and comb.

You boast of the claim you're a civilized race,
Where you can walk the streets without fear,
Yet the reality that you refuse to face,
Is that guns cost your people dear.

Legal or otherwise guns are made to kill,
That's what they're manufactured to do,
In future generations what you instil,
Is without guns you can't see your life through.

How many more tragedies will it take?
Before any lessons are learned,
It's your own constitution that you forsake,
Now's the time to show you're concerned.

Guns don't kill people is a known fact,
It's the people who abuse the gun,
Without weapons there'd be no heinous act,
There would be less killing for fun.

If America is truly the land of the brave,
Why do you need weapons of woe?
Could it be it is death you crave?
As it follows wherever guns go.

The right to bear arms is fundamentally flawed,
Mass killings are the ultimate proof,
The innocents who die are the ones you defraud,
You have no right to remain so aloof.

Arrogance and ignorance are powerful tools,
The laws of common decency they defy,
Problem is as Humans we don't play by the rules,
