Fixed With a Gun

I woke up this morning in an awful foul mood, so I reached for my weapons to make it all good.

I thought to my self and came to conclusion; I’d rather just kill than face the confusion.

I called on my people, my brothers and sons and told them to gather their rifles and guns.

I said to them all that we must all fight, show them who’s boss and fill them with fright.

I sent out my loyals to look death in the face, while I sat in my palace waiting for grace.

I killed lots of souls and thought all was right, and went to my sleep to embrace the night.

I woke next morning uneasy and weak, thoughts of destruction were reaching their peak.

I felt sick to my stomach while anxiety built; my brothers and sons were all in fact killed.

I now fight for justice and pray to the lord, and go at it again drawing my sword.

I lived a long life and have seen many days, fought many wars and tried many ways.

I lost all my brothers, killed all of my sons, I have nothing around me except for my guns.

    This is great. All of the governments in this world are guilty of killing their brothers and sons. Fact is that though they feel this loss, the next morning they wake up in the very same foul mood to get their guns and have not learned a thing about what has happened. Love this. Iris

  • Hey Iris…thank you so much for your comment…. I am not a fan of any government….and I am still trying to figure out what good ever comes out of them…thanks again!!
