you say
guns dont kill people,
people kill people

but all people
with guns
are potentially lethal

so we sit
and we watch
each sad, shameful sequel


Please Take This Hand In Yours

Please take this hand in yours
and hold it tight,
then bury it in the garden
in the dead of night.

His other body parts,
I will put in the ground,
when it’s peaceful and quiet
and there is no-one around.
