Second Amendment Wrongs

 

The right to kill permeates military

spending, uniforms sparkling,

“something to do” as we seek out

and destroy to generals’ and devil’s

cold glaring shout of pride
and approval, the parade going by,

so sharp and sure, knowing

what to do finally, because they

yelled in my ear what I’m supposed

to do.

 

This was years after I neglected Moses

on the hill, or upon returning from

God.

 

A few tablets or one, or two shouted

easy truth—so it seemed, ten commandments

then a hundred of little laws;

 

but the commandments, they are still

good. Thou shall not kill is re-written in

1789, ’90 and ratified in ’91 as the Second

Amendment to the U.S. Constitution.

 

Thou Can and Should Kill, sayeth not Moses

but geniuses like Alexander Hamilton and

Washington, War-mongers in sharp

beating uniforms parading in peace-time

to simple orders.

 

“... the right of the people to bear arms”
the rally call for NRA and killers all, so fun
at the range or in a video game, paramilitary

or on the front line, get a holster, clean your

weapon, Soldier, time to learn to live

by your gun, die by it too—go to court,
pull out the Second above Moses and God’s

Sixth—plead insanity or “self-defense,” the same

thing:

 

To MURDER as self-defense! “Yes,” the Devil

loves that amendment! “Make more like

that, abandon God, forget Moses, and

Jesus, rabbis and priests hypocrites
the lot of ‘em!”

 

BOOM, LAPD shoots another in the chest;

the bum was reaching for his vest,

must have been bad—the evil as much

in thinking we know the future as anything

else.

 

So vain, so sad, we plead the fifth against

the second avoid the sixth and cop

to violence over and over again
at borders and beyond, your own

front lawn.

 

“The right to bear arms,” defend by

killing—“Justifiable homicide,” the

Devil’s favorite two words, those and

the one known as “judging,” so

“please” the Devil pleads, coerce the

people to go in and judge others!!

 

Throw out Moses, God—take YHWH,

write it LORD, then bastardize it as

“Lord” without the capitals, go all the

way—

 

Amend real, ancient and wise law with

the right to bear arms, “right to kill”—

 

Murder God now!

 

Or repeal toward peace to Devil’s

frown, the God we kill rising up
to guns and bullets melting down

except for the ones used to hunt

our food, we can change even though

the world cannot.

 

And this was good.

Right to Bear Harms

***

AR-15’s and sport, hitting targets

imagining your hate from fear

exploding in space.

 

Killing as “defense” an excuse

to let our worst instincts express

destructive pace.

 

Rat-tat-tat we get high on the rush,

the perceived power of killing

life, tearing flesh—

 

I’m not mad at you, I love you

and am sorry we didn’t talk sooner...

wide is the path,

 

Destruction like math, if you take

a group of ten people probably nine

are having a hard time.

 

One buys a gun, starts to shoot.

We cannot stop all evil, just decide

for yourself your role;

 

Good luck but if born of woman

and hard labor rethink your desire

to plug holes

 

in others born of woman and hard

labor, the answer is love, I’m sorry.

but I love you.

 

We forgot to love. In loving, fear walks

away, and without fear there are no

assault weapons.

 

Murder is murder is murder is murder.

We murder on-screen, video games

become play things.

 

God bless us
