Another shooting has taken place in Ft. Worth, Texas
Insanity in its purest form
Where have we gone so wrong?
Is it because machines are raising our kids,
With no one to control what they do.
Have we ceased to create a home for them?
Where they can grow up strong and moral
A home where both parents can give their time
And not just throw money at them
To work and play with them
And show them that we care
Hug them when they hurt
And correct them when they’re wrong.
Is this so very hard to understand?
Or do we just not care any more.
Why has life become so cheap for us?
The death of others seems less and less important
Does abortion play a part in this?
How about the movies we watch
And the games we play.
If all of us turn in our guns
And outlaw their production
Would that stop the killing?
I think not!
Dope is illegal to use and produce
But it can be bought on any street corner
What makes us think that guns would be different.
At least guns have some redeemable qualities
Such as protection and sport
No, taking away the guns is not the answer.
But the real answer may be hard to accept
Husbands, love, honor and respect your wives.
Wives, love, honor and respect your husbands
Parents, love, respect and discipline your children.
Will we be able to do this in order to save our children,
and ultimately our whole society?
