When will we all compromise?
Make peace, promote fellowship, be human?
A hope that another child not die,
Nor another life be stolen.
A hope that no teacher need defend his pupil
and lose his life for a ’cause.’
A ’cause’ that is only a ’cause’ at all
Because of ridiculous American gun laws.
You claim the amendment wrote it in pen
And then, heck, it must be a God send.
But I don’t remember God sending down
Human beings born with a weapon.
Why do we let so much pain go on?
Why need we say they were brave?
No one need bravery and courage on Earth
If people could see others’ self worth.
Compromise, why not, on such a large issue
Where hundreds are killed for no reason.
Another mother and father wetting a tissue
Because of the murder of others: its treason.
Let’s open our eyes.
Get rid of guns, America –
It’s compromise – EUREKA!
