Since firearms manifold more bang for their buck, 

any rational per son or daughter, one wood love to chuck 
fired and squawks like Donald Duck

up in arms at alarming spike vis a vis trigger, where luck
less lie dead, when bullet released after squeezed
   by angry mother fuck

er engendering outrageous spike in wanton killings -
   the nemesis of gluck
via leaded slugs, whar led doth huck.

first time gun owners indiscriminately, who brandish 

innocent victims, and concomitantly excite  
   purported in accordance with first amendment, relish

yet proliferation allowing free ranging banshee dervish

sans weapons of mass destruction (mainly innocent lives) 
   inures citizens to appear off fish

us, and self-important becoming comfortably numb

   at regular headlines detailing some lone a bit mish 

hug ha, an automatic killer methodically unloading with a swish

multitudinous cartridges attempt to evening the score, a wish

to take revenge viz a personal vendetta 
   amidst the madding crowds - utter oye vay - tis Yiddish.

such proliferation of high-powered assault bazookas
   berserk arc with a blip

bipedal hominid(s) grip with a the hand a dirk in case the clip

doth miss the mark, where siege mentality induces
   nationwide sprint ting infamy to drip

metamorphosing into a malignant state with curled lip

pee nap noopy snapchatting beings) bursting with deadly quip

with a barrage of bullets malicious intent to spray 

   killing machines delivering rip

paying deathly howls amidst pandemonium, thence funereal slip

epitaphs etched on tombstones proliferate
   taking souls to Hades trip.

more often than not such brutal and nasty team
(short lived) nefarious scheme 

directed at humble lettered people (like those comprising ream

member ring my home town - once evoked with pastoral meme

of Lake Woebegone) minding their p's and q's, when in the extreme

and out of the blue like a nightmare interrupting an idyllic dream

a sudden bitta bing bitta bang rings terrorist catcall followed 

   by red tide and river of bloodying bodied of hue men caskets

   where mortician daub with creme.

thus occurs yet another staccato sinister sonic 

   the pearl jam gray slate of some formerly anonymous 
name sake, which underline or boss

   son or daughter of a bitch blitzkrieg of shells cross 
invisible trajectories shatter (at shutterfly speed),
   the democratic rubric - rendered as dross

disposable lives of society
   with senseless slaughter, whereat somber silence
   echoes nostalgia for the Mill on the Floss

when life seemed so innocent against the gun metal gloss 
wails of agony at another human loss.
