Man of Arms
(After massacre at Charleston Church)
There’s a man with a gun in his hand
or his hand is a gun or his arm, yes,
his entire arm is a repeating rifle
and when he waves his hands
it sprays everyone nearby.
He needs it for protection he swears
too many dangerous people roaming
safe neighborhoods like his own
so he won’t let his arms drop or
sit and rest in some damn chair.
#### Poet’s Notes ####
Post delayed due to untimely death of
a wonderful man, Al Burack. RIP.
