Way to Safety

The Way to Safety



Oh, set aside your guns — or no cigar
when safety is the boon that you desire!
Donald J. Trump is wishing on a star
when he proposes other measures. Ire
and apprehension, eyes that never tire–
these are poor substitutes for what we need,
for what tough circumstances now require.
Obama wants your guns — and you must heed
his wise demand. Oh, let him take the lead
and let the Bill of Rights go straight to hell!
Second-Amendment claims are based on greed
and do not serve the public welfare well.
Giving up guns will get you under par:
you’ll be as safe as folks in Brussels are.



–Tom Riley
