The Regulated Teddy Bear - Poem by Josephine DixonBanks

The signs of the times indicated by the ruling minds
The laws govern us like a thesaurus
Warrants our mistrust
Crucifies the just, the just

Totally unprotected no mater who is elected
We hope the resurrected remembers us in their death
How many more children must die
How long can se justify, The Lie
While making The Truth Cry
Causing the almighty dollar to buy, buy, buy

Death to our young by the hand gun
Economic foreplay glamorized as fun

There are more Laws regulating teddy bears than the gun

Homicide, genocide, parenticide, infanticide, suicide just a pun
Economic foreplay glamorized as fun
All these deaths we diplomatically shun

There are more Laws regulating teddy bears than the gun

We can figure out the effects of the sun
Calculate how fast our thoughts run
Even develop a stun gun

There are more Laws regulating teddy bears than the gun

This type of consciousness takes a lot of funds
Instead of providing sustenance, food stamps buy guns

In 1990 hand gun deaths,10,567, in the U.S.A.
10 in Australia,13 in Sweden,22 in Great Britain,
68 in Canada and 87 in Japan

Death to our young by the hand gun
Economic foreplay glamorized as fun
All these deaths we diplomatically shun

There are more Laws regulating teddy bears than the gun
