I regret the things I did not say
when braver paths should’ve been my way,
to limit harm and protect the young
both at home and worlds far flung.
Lets block greedy goals that unmake men,
shun those afraid, seeking fateful omen.
Too many lost in six hundred ticks,
not time now for partisan politics.
No need to take away every gun,
but return the ban once before won.
Ten thousand annual to graves patrol,
don’t need this type of population control.
Who needs to fire one hundred rounds?
Elementary schools are not killing grounds.
Restore some balance to mental health,
a few less dollars for bombing stealth.
And while we’re at it, end hunger and pain,
So that young souls did not die in vain.
