This poem is dedicated to every politician that has refused to pass responsible gun legislation and is a voice for those who will die in the days ahead because of our leaders’ incompetence, willful ignorance, and greed. 


My Arsenal
by Asherah

Anger is my arsenal

This pen my lethal weapon

As I raise my voice to fight

This political armageddon.


A war wrought with destruction

Of innocent observers

Saving victims of this violence

With verbal life-preservers.


It’s all I have to offer

It’s all I have to give.

These words

This poem

My honesty

In hopes that we may live


Free of bloodied bullets

And of suffocating fear

Unsure what lies ahead

Our future is unclear.


Without new regulations

To fix this thriving issue

Deaths from growing gun violence

Will exponentially continue


My scribbles scream for help

Its frantic pleas forsaken

Trusting you to keep us safe

We were thoroughly mistaken


Seeya 'round town, Moscow, because . . .

"Moscow Cares" (the most fun you can have with your pants on)
