More Than Enough



Hope as a strategy is not enough
Time to stand tall and be tough
Guns strike like empowered thunder
Killing innocents by the number

Pain and panic plague modern man
Giving gun violence the upper hand
The days of the Lone Ranger are past
Adios to gun toting romance at last

Common sense dictates intervention
By government for its citizens protection
Immediate legislative compromise a must
Considering this era of congressional mistrust

No silver bullet can solve this situation
Without effort from the US Population
Universal background checks play a part
Targeted by most polls as a sound start

Take a knee against the status quo
We are the bravest people I know
The world awaits a legislative solution
To our growing gun violence pollution

K.A. Crosby
