World Safety 101 (poem)

ban guns poetry

 

Gotta ban guns. Gotta ban

knives. Gotta ban sticks. They all

take lives. Gotta ban bats. Gotta

ban rocks. Gotta ban lasers and tasers that shock.

 

Gotta ban pepper spray. Gotta ban stones. They go

with the sticks and break all your bones. Gotta ban

weights you can smash on a head gotta ban

pillows that suffocate dead gotta ban

chainsaws and hacksaws – the mess! –

gotta ban teeth they can bite through

your flesh gotta ban radios you

throw in a tub gotta ban

razors and golf tees and

clubs. Gotta ban

 

spoons they can scoop out

your eyes. Gotta ban sharp things

like spears and steeples. Gotta ban

sex as sex makes people who –

kill people with guns

and knives.
