Bullet Points

by Nora Jay

“NRA suing New York for deeming gun stores non-essential businesses during coronavirus pandemic”

When the great Recording Angel
Notes the horrors of today
In the box that’s marked NO CHANGE’ll
Shine the mighty NRA.

Though we others now are doing
What before we’d never done,
Wayne LaPierre continues suing
For the honor of the gun.

It’s a vision to inspire us:
Life may change, but this does not.
Even those who catch the virus
Are entitled to get shot.
