From The Schoolhouse At Monster And Maple

We are living in savage times. Here, what you see…
This assault weapon. It’s what the serious use
When they’ve lost every hope of somehow blending in
With society’s madness. All heart is of sin.
If I think I see one who may have a short fuse,
I will do what I can to protect you and me.

But, don’t worry, dear students. I am fully trained.
My reflexes are sharp, and my judgement is keen.
I can spot ‘evil sickos’ a yardstick away.
I would shoot any person if I thought they may
Do the same to another, not whether foreseen
Nor withheld from the instant through fate ascertained.

I am now your Godmother, well-armed and prepared.
You will note that I don’t have a smile on my face.
That’s because our wise president wants me to be
Just as perverse as he is. I hope you can see.
It’s the rifle folk eager to run an arms race
And keep children who protest tormented and scared.
