Musket Madness

3dgun

 

Plastic muskets laid bare

To the earth and the air

As rogue arms on a dare

Sought excuse to declare

Every day a warfare

Blood and death everywhere

By a print left to share

As weak minds to beware

Turn stale rage to nightmare

While those who ought be aware

Turn blind eye to despair

By their greed fast ensnared.
