That after horrible or violent events,
As a cruel way to vent too serious grief
& to take the pressure off some,
Dark jokes will soon surface. Then spread.
To workplaces, as casual talk, yes,
Plus, throughout campuses.
Though not through the usual mediums, this time./
I find it kinda funny when odd fears are realized
By the armed
Hoarding their hidden caches of
When the same crack team
Of govt.-trained troups
So successful far from home
Do go door to door At home,
Search warrant OK’d by presidential decree,
To go in, and go under underwear drawers,
Rifling for rifles;
Masturbatory safe dolls. Icons, even./
But at a time before that time,
We’ll drop by the plush residences
Of our adopted representatives,
Pay ‘em a visit,
Tight white shirts so they know
We’re carrying a friend.
That though a lot of commerce has come,
A lot of exchanges, agreed & understood,
This time there’ll be no threat of voter retribution,
This time they might do the right thing.
We’ll mention how wrong decisions
Made might mean
One’s big boat, or golf clubs,
Or mistress, or ” Rainy Day” fund
Tomorrow, or even ever again./
Then, these same guns that surely helped ensure
A democracy we could live with,
Would go with the rest.
.Half a laugh I guess.
