Christmas Cocktail

by Julia Griffin

“Rep. Thomas Massie said Monday he’ll never delete the controversial photo he posted over the
weekend of him and his family holding guns in front of a Christmas tree…. ‘I crossed guns with family
and Christmas, and those are three things that really could trigger
the leftists, and I didn’t realize
that it would be such an explosive cocktail when you put it together. But it adds up to freedom.'”

Louisville Courier Journal

Those leftists! Pardon while I snigger:
I didn’t know that guns would trigger;
I never worry, when I load,
If something’s going to explode.
But as I grin before my tree,
Three things are adding up for me:
Guns, Christmas, and the GOP.
That’s what makes high schools truly free.
